I recently bought a Speed 3, and I'm considering a couple of mods. Nothing too radical, just motor mount, maybe SRI, maybe shifter bushings. But I've heard bad things on the forums about Mazda dealers voiding warranties because of mods, and I like my warranty. Does anyone know of a dealer in the Portland area who's cool with reasonable mods?

I think AutoTown and Tonkin are reasonable with mods. I don't see your mods being an issue unless one of them causes damage. People tend to get into trouble with heavy breather mods.

Anyone have experience w/ Royal Moore in Hillsboro? Thats where I bought my car- I asked the service manager and he couldnt really give me a straight answer when I was asking about possibly doing a TBE. Maybe i'll just be going to AutoTown..

I would recommend Josh at Auto town or Ron Tonkin. Only experience I have had at Royal Moore is with Shane (great guy) the internet sales guy so probably not much help.
Oddly I have had good luck at Alan Webb, they recently got a new service manager. I talked with one service guy who has a modded Evo who is pretty cool, and they keep sending me $20 oil change coupons.

I worked at Herzog Meier for over a year at their HM Motorsports division. Not only are they mod friendly, they can get you the part(s) you want. Even odd companies and tuner-specific brands (not just mazdaspeed parts). They will install the parts, and even warranty the installation without it interfering with your factory warranty. Highly recommended.
