How flat are we talking about, if it's just to correct any warpage then the usual is give or take $50 a head if you give them the head. Otherwise shop around and you can get a pair done with new valves and bronze guides for around $750. The higher performance you want the more the cost you can spend thousands on heads.

If its just a shave and assenble with lapping then you shouldn't get charged more than around $100 a head.
