Default west coast machine shop reference?

I'm unable to find a performance engine machine shop in my area that has mazda specific tools. In particular, I wish to bore/hone my block and am unable to find a shop in the Portland or surrounding area that has a torque plate to fit an NB miata motor.

Any references for a machine shop in Oregon, or perhaps the Seattle area?

Wait for curly to respond. I haven't had any engine work done. I know he has used Clackamas Auto Parts in the past, but may have changed.

FM rents a torque plate for cheap, although shipping adds a bunch.

Yes. I did just get a text that Loyning's engine service in Portland has a miata torque plate. Thanks all for helping me network! http://www.loynings.com/

Don't you have that red mazdaspeed race car? Planning a 400hp build?

I use Clackamas auto parts, but I don't think they have a torque plate.

Sadly, no on the 400hp build Curly!

...I'm just trying to get a spare together for the upcoming season. I'm pretty hard on equipment. My current OEM motor has been over boosted, over-reved and is running a little leaner than I'd like. It's just a matter of time before I'll be showing up on your doorstep asking for tuning help with a new forged longblock.

But, one thing at a time... I just picked up my new MCS shocks from AR auto... and I'm stoked! Thanks for the reference.
