hey guys..quick question...when getting the valve job done, its a good idea to take care of the 2 cylinder heads...I was wondering if the machine shop was kidding me when they said its 650 for each head....

sounds a little steep to me....right?

Check with Hemi about where he took them?


Problem is, Bill, that was 20 years ago. At that time you could get both heads done for that $650 price.

That includes replacement of the exhaust valve guides. Those are the ones that slip down and cause all that exhaust smoke at idle.

my question is: what is a "normal" pricerange for a machineshop to charge per head?

Shelbyone, I would do a little shopping around. You could possibly save a lot if you did a little looking.
