Im not sure what they are gonna charge. He rattled off the numbers to me before I dropped it off but I didnt add em up.

The guy im taking it to has an awesome reputation though so price is besides the point. Everyone ive told that im getting the work done by rich has told me he's the best guy in town for it.

Machining is expensive. I'm expecting about 500 for wash, decking, balancing. May get new valve seats too. I'll do the valve grinding my self
