First,

I've always heard good things about Metric motors. But, I've never been big on exchanging my parts for some rebuilt abused parts. Assuming mine isn't damaged!!

If your car has been cared for reasonably, it shouldn't require much. Do you have a good machine shop in your town?? If so, I'd be suprised if you needed to replace valves. Guides might still be in spec if you take it apart and measure. It's ussually easiest to go by feel, first removing the oil with a solvent. Checking side by side movement.
I'd guess maybe $150 for a valve and seat grinding if the guides check out. Make sure the head is clean and flat- no cracks! Measure the stretch bolt lengths(they should be reuseable) and reassemble.
