    Not finding any threads or google searches for a repair shop in Oklahoma City area.

    Any recommendations I’m missing? OKC or Edmond?

    it’s built and tuned but a bit over my head for timing adjustment. Three local shops turned me away!

    Timing adjustment or timing chain replacement?

    The timing chain has been replaced. As well as the guide and tensioner.

    I reached back out to the builder (hour and a half away from me). He said it’s likely the balance shaft delete causing an occasional knock.

    What exactly is happening that makes you think you have an issue to address?

    It went into limp mode and initially gave me a misfire timing trouble code. I swapped the spark plugs and coil packs and cam shaft position sensor and cleared the codes. The 0012 came back.

    Looks like there was a similar post here not sure if a solution was ever found.

    I'm in Chicagoland and luckily I found a great shop that specializes in Speeds not far from me.

    Parts guy at my local Mazda dealer told me about it. Not sure what the situation is like with dealers in your area but it might be worth asking around.

    I would follow the advice that rokusek gave about the sensor in the other thread before doing anything

    He was actually upfront that it still needed a final tune and some other items. Provided receipts as well.

    Did you clean the crank position sensor?
