Depends how far you go...if you can clean up the valves rather than replace them, that's a big savings. Also depends on which engine. On some engines, just taking the heads off without renewing the case studs is kinda risky...more like a "patch job" really. And on an OLDER Porsche, those studs can break when you twist them off for the first time in 30 years.
So maybe $2500--$5000, depending on a lot of things. You have to pull the engine and then it's one of those "while you're in there" sort of deals. Clutch? heater boxes? alternator? fan bushings? CV joints?
