new heads w/ hardened valve seats?

Does anyone offer "new" heads with hardened valve seats installed? Only want to buy and do heads once so want to go overkill. Would be great if I could find some w/ hardened seats and a port/polish job already done.

Re: new heads w/ hardened valve seats?

From what I understand I wouldn't do a port and polish head on a daily driver. Makes them to weak for cracks. But hardened seat and a valve job I'd look into. I honestly don't know anyone that has brand new one heads with all that done.

Gotta pay to play son!
