Idk who the “Best” is but you could call Race Tech, XPR or even Todd at TLR.
Lots of options.

You could have got three different prices by simply calling around and answered your own question.

usually like 30-40 for a 3 angle, and 50-60 for a 5 angle per seat. Tim at X-PRO in Andover Connecticut is the best place to send it.

Valves cut? Or seats?
My local guy charges $75 per head.

I would recommend getting rid of the iron valve seats entirely if youre replacing the stock valves with Titanium again. it'll run about $300 to get all 4 seats replaced with Moldstar90 or an equivalvent Copper/Bronze/Nickel/Beryllium alloy that will provide a better sealing surface, cooler combustion chamber temps, and longer valve life.

If youre switching to stainless valves, a good 3 angle cut on the stockers will be fine. Make sure you run good strong springs with heavier valves and ALWAYS use new locks on new valves.
