What shop can produce valve guides?

Need new exhaust valve guides for my N45 engine. But BMW don’t provide it.

So I need to find a machine shop that can produce new ones from measurement of the old ones pressed out of the head.

Anyone have a tip on such a production company?

VAC can do anything.. Depending where you live, there is most likely a non-automotive machine shop that you can take it to... They can do all the CAD and make it..

Call VAC Motorsports in Philadelphia. They have CNC and other machines and make a lot of parts and have awesome supplier network as well. Steve and Mike are both great to work with.
