You shouldn't need exhaust valves, at least from the timing belt slip. 
Intakes are the norm. Check with Keith on parts prices - he can probably 
rattle them off for you. If you will pull the heads yourself you can 
probably do the whole thing for under 1200.00. As long as the valves are 
just bent and you haven't killed a piston
Isn't John Beckius (sic?) in your neck of the woods? He would know a 
good shop. Any good shop that is familiar with VW heads will work. Check 
with the Porsche places too...
