don't let them tell you "this head is scrap".....if they're not familiar with these subaru heads they probably won't know any better. the shop i deal with freaks out when i bring them in to get milled. i just ignore them.
it's no surprise these things are old and outta the minds of most folks by now.

I would just get them resurfaced and think about a valve grind if you can afford it.. or just clean the valves up and lap them in..

I had 2 SPFI engines like this, both ran perfectly after assembled. The MPFI cyl heads do the same thing.
I never used a machine shop... We always used to block the heads and sand them with a flatboard using 120 then 200 grit sandpaper. Never had a single problem, and I still know some of my customers that I did the engines 5, 6 years ago...
