Cylinder Head Work Estimates

Hey guys, let me know if these prices sound fair to you... this is a copy of my correspondence thus far.

Mike
Thank you for inquring about our machine services. Below are prices to get you in the ball park. I priced out what you requested, along with some other services you might consider
High Perfomance valve Job = $235.00
Taking cams out and installing cams and adjusting them = $85.00
Pressure testing head (checking for cracks, which we would do first if you wanted us to, so you are not spending money on a damged head) = $50.25
True up deck surface (gasket surface) = $48.75
or
A performance true up on deck surface (usually needed for high performance application or if you are going to use a steel shim head gasket) = $75.00
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like me to price out any parts (gaskets, etc,,). You contact me at xxx-xxx-xxxx, or continue to use e-mail.
Thanks

Hello, I was wondering if you could give me a rough estimate for a 3 angle complete valve job on a Honda H22A4 2.2 Liter VTEC head if I supply the head, valves, guides, springs, and retainers. I understand that for a better estimate you would need to inspect the head in person, but I’m just looking for a ball park estimate assuming that the head is in otherwise decent condition. Thank you for your time.

Shop is in Bensalem PA. They apparently specialize in all high compression/racing applications, domestics and imports. It looks like they have a pretty state of the art facility with lots of goodies... check out their site.
