It been several years since the last time I did a full port job. I would guess that it takes me about 40 hours to port the intake and exhuast and polish the exhuast. That's not including the valve job. Others may be able to do it quicker but take 40 hours as an average and multiply that by your machine shop's hourly rate. You'll find that you can buy aftermarket heads cheaper and you still haven't started on the valve job, valve guides or bought any parts. No set of 882 castings is worth this price.
