It is inexcusable for a "professional" to render a running car inoperable. A reputable mechanic would absorb the cost of the damage and make it his top priority to repair your car correctly ASAP. If it is the fault of the machine shop, they should replace your cylinder head gratis. If it were my car, I would raise five kinds of hell with the mechanic.
