Any 705 owners with original valves?

Decided to do the 705 kit on my 2003 with 11k miles, no mechanical issues. Matt at Import Auto Parts in Santa Barbara will do the machine work, I'll do the installation. Decided against the +1mm valves, but will have Matt grind the coarse stuff out of the ports, grind the valves and install new seals.

So, are there other 705 owners out there who only had minor head work done, and can you share your experience?
