Diesel performance in southern Ohio?

Anyone know of any diesel performance shops in southern Ohio? Or any really close? It's very difficult to find anyone around me that has any knowledge in diesel tuning or performance. Especially with the powerstrokes.

Granted I've had great luck getting parts and tunes through the net and from the typical tuners but it'd be nice to have a local shop, especially with tuning.

Where in Southern Ohio are you? What are you looking to have done? One of the mechanics here at work runs a shop on his time off and he has done a lot of general diesel work and powerstroke head gasket jobs. He also does tranny work and other general upgrades. He is outside of Xenia.

Try Woodruff Diesel near New Vienna. That shop builds the motors for the Ohio CAT pulling truck. Good folks. You can see some of thier work with pulling trucks if you youtube thier name.

That must be why they're so arrogant! I haven't heard alot of good out of them, and they are definately a Cummins shop. That's what the cat truck has in it.

There's also a vast difference in a pulling truck and a daily driver. There's many that can make power, the trick is for how long....

I've had some buddies get work done there on Fords and Dodges, with good results. They seemed to be knowledgeble. Hope you can find a shop in the area that works for ya.

I'm from Middletown and all my buddies drove diesels. I believe the shop they want to is day's diesel. I could be wrong, but I think that's what its called. Point is,I know there is one down there. I feel your pain. Nobody gives a damn about us Ohioans lol.

Actually just found their FB page. Looks like they specialize with duramax but its worth shot.they're in Germantown.
