Question Looking for inexpensive shop/tech for 7.3

Looking for a inexpensive shop or individual in the columbs, ohio area to install some mods on my truck and help fix some leaks. I just don't want to spend a arm and a leg at the dealership. Looking to have the turbo pedstal orings replaced, up pipe donuts, and hpop line orings replaced. I could probably do some of this myself but would feel better if a shop did it, at a reasonable cost at that. The dealership wanted over $300 for just replacing the hpop line orings!!

To replace the HPOP o-rings is very simple and vertually no tools needed. It took me about 30 minutes to do both new lines and fittings and all three o-rings on the pump. Check out some of the stickys on 7.3 repair help section. Very informational. And ask for help, most here know what you are going through. We all have gone through it ourselvers. The up pipe donuts are easy, just takes alittle time. Check out the donut gaskets on beansdiesel.com, they are brass and are specific for the 7.3 up pipe issues. While you have the turbo off you will be able to get your o-rings done at the same time. Parts are readily available. I am sure all of these procedures are on this website in the 7.3 repair or the 7.3 motor problem or in the 7.3 tech sections. Yell back if you have any concerns. Good luck.
