Default machine shop

Hey everyone,

Does anyone have a recommendation for a machine shop for refreshing a 2.5L block? I picked one up today cause my 09 sti is on the verge of a ringland failure.

Also I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion for where I could get my hands on a torque plate for said block machining.

Thanks!

If the machine shop you go to doesnt have one. That is a sign to find another machine shop. If you have time. Check out the build motor forum. Outfront motorsports in LA. Is one of the best I have heard. And they do it for a good price.
