Does anyone know of a good machine shop that can machine parts out of billet aluminum?

It's not a large part, perhaps 2in x 2in x 14 in

Thanks.

My friend whose more like my "personal pit crew" has a friend that does that kind of stuff. I'm not sure what's invloved in making one though. It's one of those things I'm certain he could do but I'm not sure if he would need some sort of CAD to work off or if a factory piece with new specs would due. I'll ask him to ask his friend and let you know.

He's going to try and make me a billet spark plug cover like the DC one. If that works I'm going to see what other pcs he can make as well.

I have the piece that I want duplicated. It has a few design oddities that I want to change. I could probably use it, but it would have to be modified some. It's also a very easy shape to make, not like the 5Gen fuel rail.

I can send pics of the piece to you.

Yeah send me the pics Billy. I'm 99% sure I'll see my friend tonight and he's supposed to see his friend over the weekend so I can let it run and see what he thinks.
