I guess it depends on exactly what part of the diesel repair you want to get into. More performance based, farm and heavy equipment, or just light duty. I supposed if its more performance based then maybe UTI or something like that. Performance stuff is cool and fun, but trendy. Something more steady and stable to raise a family would be the latter. In my opinion. Im not saying there are not opportunities in the performance diesel industry, just not near as many, and I really dont know the pay. From my experience at least in the gasoline performance field working for someone else is not going to let you raise a family comfortably. Mechanics working at a dealership wil typically get you twice the money.

I'm not looking at performance. I'm looking into fleet, light duty, or even marine!
