I seem to have gotten pretty lucky. I disassembled the head and checked the valves and guides. The damage is 4 exhaust valves and 2 intake valves are bent. There was no excessive play in the guides-in fact they all felt about the same with the wiggle test and had that "smooth" feeling to them.
After thoroughly cleaning the head, I took a set of intake and exhaust valves (don't worry, I numbered them so they will go back in the correct hole) and hydro tested the valve seats and not a single drop of water seeped through the valve seats in an hour.
I'm going to re&re the valves, check the cam clearances and see where we stand.

I'll call Tousley tomorrow with my grocery list and hit up Summit for the head studs.
