the cost is irrelevant,the knowledge of the machine shop that has done 6.0s is the answer.

You can probably expect around $1000.00 in machine shop cost for machining, pressure testing valve job, etc.

We have a shop here that has been in business for well over 20 years! They know what they doing! They do about 10 6.0 head sets a week! They charge me like $250 for decking, magnaflux, and pressure checking! Plus they will let me know if any of the valves look bd! If so we go from there! They will deck and magnaflux for like $125, but I always like to get em pressure tested!
