Diesel Tech in Iowa

Anyone know of a good diesel tech in central or NE Iowa? Have 85K on the truck and figured I either should get rid of it or make the mods to make it live a long happy life. Mods seem like the most cost effective route. I have 4" turbo back, gages, and Matt's tunes. Looks like I should get rid of the EGR valve and cooler and get a coolant filter installed. Maybe do something with the fuel system. Don't really have an abundance of time to do this myself, so wondered if there are any shops close-by that someone on here might recommend.

What are your plans? Fuel system is more than likely not necessary. Maybe a pump wouldn't hurt with the air seperator, studs wouldn't be a terrible idea.

I thought one of the potential problems with injectors was the factory fuel pump/filter setup and that an aftermarket system might alleviate those concerns. I do have a fuel pressure gage that was installed by previous owner after taking out 3 or 4 injectors due to plugged filter. Pressure typically runs 44-46 psi.
