06 4.0 head

We have a 2006 stang with a 4.0 in our shop. The engine over heated and we sent the heads out to be machined but they are not sure how much they can cut off of them... Any help with this issue would be great..

The 4.0 has been around for years, Explorers and the like all had them. If your machine shop can't figure it out, you need to go to another machine shop. Nothing about the 4.0 should surprise any decent machine shop. That said, I haven't a clue to your answer, but a decent shop should.

Well that escalated quickly... I would've started with the thermostat. What all did you do before you decided to just pull the heads? What is being machined on the heads?
