Recommendation on Diesel Mechanic/Shop

Good afternoon,

I have an 'interesting' question.

I am very likely going to be purchasing a 6.0 powerstroke this winter. I am aware of the necessary upgrades that need to be done in order to make the 6.0 'relieable'.

I would like to know what diesel shop is recommended for getting this kind of work done?

I am not opposed to using a local who performs the work in their home on the side.

So shop or not, doesn't matter to me. I'd just like someone/or shop who is honest and straightforward.

Thanks,
Chris

I'm in Golden, but I'll travel for a good mechanic/shop.

Ask at the link he posted... And not sure for Denver, but springs and south Denver I'd have to say dirt road diesel all the way.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

Hello - I'm new to the forum. I just had studs done on my 6.0 among many other things (new turbo, meth-injection, exhaust, coolant filtration, etc, etc). I am in Northern Colorado and US Automotive Machine in Loveland did the work. What was kinda cool with them is they have a Dyno on-site. So as we did the work on the truck, we did a Dyno pull for each part to see what the performance / power gain was.

Auto and Truck Solutions out of Denver. It's all they do these days is fix / upgrade the 6.0's.
