I swear there was a thread on this a couple of months back? It may have been a different place but that price sounds very familiar.

I shall see if I can find it.

**edit: Found it. From what they replied to ticky's email they were still using standard size valves and said to expect a 35kw increase, although this alone is kinda useless without seeing dyno results. I cbf reading through the pages but I remember there was a bit of talk about it.

what cam? regrind? if so its about $140 from wade direct

porting? this is where u either get ripped or not....depends how good of a job it is...how much it costing per hour /. how many hours? will they flow bench it and provide figures....

how much for the reco....and ill bet u wouldnt even be able to tell if they just reused your older valves or did actually use new ones...over size exhaust valves is s**t (they will not do this)...

get a price on the reco by itself and compare the extras...
