It would likely be considerably more then that amount.  I am a pretty fair
mechanic, but I still pay machine shops to swap my valves.  It is not worth
my time or worth buying the compressors.  Not only that, I would have to buy
head sets, and guides.  So, my guess is, it would be north of $2000 by the
time you got all that in and done...not to mention the frustration of a
broken stud or two.  For me, it would be considerably easier as I have the
engine out of the car.  Just something to think about for those who are
considering the whole enchilada.
