he basically told me anything worth doing is gonna cost over a $1000 and tried to say a pi swap would be the same cost as getting brand new parts because of the cost of testing everything to make sure its good and a p&p job for my stock heads would be around a $1000

well he said he wont work on any part that isnt tested that its good, he said used heads are about $300 and its about $200-300 for him to run all the tests and at the point its better to get brand new heads

i just dont know if hes tryin to squeeze money out of me or not

We had a guy like that at our shop I didnt like him at all... On the other side we had a straight up guy who was the best guy you could ever get to work on your car straight forward and never made you spend more then you had to!!

+1 there are enough write-ups out there on How-Tos etc etc. And it only takes a little bit of common sence...

your not too far from me, id say id help but ive never done one, and id like to do it on my own car so if i screw up i dont feel so bad lol. but if you have another car to drive in the mean time, id just tear it down, and use the write ups step by step.
