I never understood why people still put up with crappy service.
Get your money back and send it to a company who knows how to take care of their customers.

Remember what i told you last time about torque plates.
They are not "absolute".
It's not practical to expect a machine shop to have a torque plate made for every engine they are going to hone. Deck plates are about $180. It's a good investment only if you do a lot of the same motor FOR performance oriented customers.

There's not a lot of honda guys in IA let alone "performance hondas" so don't count on any machine shops having a torque plate inhouse for any import engines (honda/dsm ect).

Stock rebuilds or mild setup, all you need is a knowledable machinist and he'll make sure everythings honed out to acceptable specs.

Also just because a shop doesn't work with many hondas, you cannot rule them out.
A engine builder and machinist who knows what they are doing will know what to do even if they haven't built many of 1 type of motor.

Moving on.
OP.... don't give up on the b16 so quickly pal.
If you want tq, don't look into any NA honda..... throw a turbo on there pal.

But a crx with b16 tranny, you don't need much tq to get going anways 110-120tq is plenty fine, you just gotta keep the rpms up there a little higher but it's what the b16 loves to do anyways. lol
