Looking for a good 6.0 Mech in the DFW Tx area

I have a 03 6.0 truck that is having no problems currently. I have 97K on it and have been on the fence between spending the coin to do the headstuds or doing the 200K warranty. I was thinking about getting the headstuds done and possibly doing the EGR delete while it is all apart. Anyone know of anyone doing this in the DFW. This is currently not my DD or my work truck so if it was down in a shop with the cab off for a week or two it would not matter. Also what should the typical fee for such a job be? If I remember hear correctly I thought I heard someone say 1K plus all parts. Is that about par? Thanks in advance. JJ

Moves my stuff around.

I thought about the 200K warranty but after talking to the guy to me it isn't worth it. Pretty much the only way the 200K warranty works is if the engine damage was caused by a lubrication problem/failure.
