Good 6.0 shop around Denver?
Just got my first diesel, 2006 F350 CCSB, but I'm a lifetime Ford guy. (OBS F250 gasser is rusting away, after many years of wheeling in the hills and DD commuting, and a slightly modded Crown Vic now parks in my garage.)
I did quite a bit of research on PSD.org and other sites, spent about a month looking at used 06-07s around Denver, so I kinda know what I'm getting into, and what to expect.
I'm already planning the serious 6.0L bulletproofing (studs, etc.), and factored that into my purchase decision and price.
I'd like to get some “fun” enhancements, eventually. And I understand that some of those mods could be more cost effective, if they were done at the same time as the bulletproofing.
I'm looking for a shop to handle routine maintenance (i.e., with relocated oil filter and coolant filter), basic 6.0 troubleshooting and repairs, and some performance upgrades and tweaks. Doesn't have to be all one shop.
Nowadays, I just don't have time to do most of my own mechanic work, like I used to, and I really don't want to get burned by incompetent or unscrupulous morons.
So, I'd like to get your advice and recommendations for good diesel shops around the north Denver metro area, or a reasonable distance from there.
Thanks for all input and suggestions.
