It should not be a problem to keep the block in the car and get the head machined. In fact I think most people do it this way. Be sure to keep the hood closed and try your best to keep debris or moisture from getting inside the cylinders.
Now seems like a good time to go for a MLS and some ARP studs if you are planning for boost in the future.
