Read my post again.... 125 for me to do it my self...H22AllMotor said:$700 bucks....that's a little on the heavy side unless you are getting the Honda dealer to do it. If you pull the head yourself and take it to the head shop it should not cost that much. I took my head to a local import performance machine shop and they did the full resurface, valve grind, valve seats, stem seals, everything for $250 plus parts ( another $200 ). And that's in Canadian $ (about $300 US ).
and what point is this remark exactly on?H22AllMotor said:And my point was that while the head was off why do a half-assed job to fix one or two valves when you can go through the whole head and get everything perfect and equal. For the extra few bucks it is well worth it to have an entirely new head with equal valve seating for more equal compression and power across the 4 cylinders.
