there's this really cool book called the yellow pages and look up your local machine shop and ask alot of question to make sure they will do what you need them to do for you for the right price.

A good valve job is usually in the 200s range. that includes new seals, resurface, hot tank, valve job.

Not all machine shops are the same. You have to find a place that really knows what they are doing. A bad valve job is worth as not even doing one at all.

Yeah, they are located in LA, right off the 10 freeway. They are a pretty big shop and although I haven't met the guys in the back yet, I have spoken with some of the guys in the front and they are pretty knowledgeable.

The last time I took a head in, they had to replace 3 exhaust valves, they gave me the valves and showed me why they were bad. They only charged 9 bucks per valve(I've had other shops try to rape me on parts without even using lube). This was on an all stock b18a motor that I was working on so stock replacement valves was just fine.

Anyway, exospeed appears to do good work to. haven't had any 1st hand experience with them, but I probably will in the near future.
