do like i did befriend a honda tech and find out where they outsource their machine work. simple. then call them and ask questions. but remember they will be a bit expensive just play the game.... start off like.... hey, so and so referred me from such and such dealer. he said tha you do good work.... there, that should start you on your way.

just dont go to Clint over at Dover. my roommate had work done by him. he rebuilt his GSR and when he got it back it smoked under hard acceleration. Clint took it back to fix it. He bored out the block to 85.5mm and put type-r pistons in. we got it back put it in the car drove a 1000 miles to break it in. after the first hard acceleration it started to smoke again. never again will i go there.
