Bent exhaust valve repair cost?
So I have a very good assumption that I have a bent exhaust valve. My question is:
other than the valve itself and a new head gasket, is there any other machine work that usually needs to be done when this happens?

Also since I have a lowport head sitting in my garage shed, Is the exhaust valves interchangeable with a highport sr20det?

DET valves are sodium filled, but i think they are still interchangeable.

Its a shame, cause i just threw out a complete det head

Anybody got experience on fixing these??

det exhaust valves are 9MM de are 8mm intakes are interchangeable. you will want to get a valve job and probably need new guides as the bent valve probably damaged them. You can get all the parts from Greg (thats what I did during my det rebuild)

Hmm so i think it getting a vvl head would be option then cause it would cost me a bit to fix.
