Default Good Dmax Experienced Machine Shops in the NW

I'm looking for a good machine shop in the NW part of North America that does exceptionally good work in allign boring, torq honing, and balancing on Dmax's.

Preferably someone in Washington, Idaho, Montana, or BC is where I would like to go as it is within driving distance. All the local guys in Alberta that I have heard of or have had experience with are clowns and don't have much experience or have really muffed up some builds.

Thanks all.

I would check with Dave at PDR see if he can point you in the right direction.

Oh I know Ted quite well!

But he out sources his machining too so whatever I find may help him out. The guy he has been using is a little less than reliable.

I may have something lined up with G&J diesel in Billings, Montana. They are reasonably close and they built Dirtymax so I think they may know a thing or two about Dmax's!!

When I was in Idaho, I had a friend of mine who owns a machine shop do all my machine work for me. He did a good job, and I wouldn't have a problem recommending him to anyone else. He's west of Boise right on the Oregon border, so that may be a little further than you want to go.

It's all good. Still waiting for a quote from Brad Makinen at G&J Diesel. I guess they were tearing up the track at the Blackout this weekend in Leduc and I need to get ahold of Josh H's guy as well.

Still just researching for now anyhow so no rush.
