    Your post makes my eyes bleed. Next time please take some time to correct your spelling and grammatical errors. It makes it easier to understand and answer questions.

    Anyway, that sounds about right for some work to me. Shops shaft everyone, so sure, why not. Even though you could get a whole new head for that price, easily.

    Used head, maybe. I would just spend the extra cash and buy it online since your getting a startup guarantee. Buying it off the street is a good way to get shafted.

    ^ Well thats what I'm saying. He only needs new valve seals. So maybe he could pick up a head -the cams,valves, springs, etc. for cheap and then take the stuff from his head and swap it over and keep the good seals in there.
