Default picked up my head today!

so, here it is, the b16 head w/ new valves etc. here is the cool part, when i went into the shop to pay for the work, the guy starts tewlling me the valve seats were no good and that he went ahead and did a valvegrind for me, so im thinking more$$, valvegrinds arent free, the guy says no, nocharge, i was just letting you know what i did for you.. so, today valvegrinds were free...

to begin with i wasnt even going to do the valves etc. yet, but decided that was just a bad idea, and took the top end of the engine apart again. im trying to finish this thing on pocket change. when i bought the motor i was supervising the building of a house, and was taking down 1.5 - 2k a week... and lets just say im doing alot less now.. so the valvegrind , didnt look too bad, till he went to install the new.. im much happier it did get done, and id be stupid to complain about the price

Did you get titanium retainers, performance springs and valves or did you replace it with the stock stuff? Looks good either way.
