Questions On Cylinder Heads and Machining

This falls under the topic of Engines but its more of an open question to those with some experience with reworking heads and the associated costs.

I am assembling a 350 for my work/play truck and the time has come to buy some heads. I have a few sets in my shed so I took them to the local auto machine shop to get reworked.

The total bill will be $330 for milling, complete valve job, new springs, new seals, getting them cleaned, magnafluxed, getting bronze liners installed, and getting the heads back within 2 days.

I was wondering what you all think of the bronze liners, since they seem to be the way to go versus the cast guide for cost and time. Anyone have any experience with these liners?

I think the price is pretty good for having a bolt on product in 2 days but I was somewhat curious what others are paying for a similar product.

i paid $250 to have my head rebuilt.. this was for my 4.2L I6.. so $330 for a v8 doesnt seem to be bad.
