Not in the UK but Bill Wilson did mine. He did a fantastic job and is a good guy to deal with.

BDK race engineering in Norwich did mine, good to deal with and a top job too.

Thanks for your reply's guy's :smt023

Unfortunately sending to Bill Wilson in the states would cost too much and forgot about BDK so will send them a message.

messaged Mad Bikers, Gibbs Performance and GT Performance Engineering and only Mad Bikers have come back to me at the moment but asked them the turnaround time as they are on shut down soon so still waiting.

Mick Abbey tuned my engine and made the exhausts a top job as well, at the time he couldn,t re-profile the heads but he might do now. It would worth giving him a call to find out.

Good question Phil, I'd like to go the removable dome route and eliminate the head gasket all together.
