500-800 dollars. They have to do head milling most likely, and possibly check the valves.

To add to the last answer, since the Civic has an aluminum head, the head could be cracked too. If that's the case, add another 200-400 to your bill. Might be better just to do a JDM engine swap. Look for low mileage engines from Japan on your browser. I would go that route rather than put a new head on an old engine.
