Help in FL

Hey guys,
I have a cousin with a 2007 Ford F350 with the 6.0 diesel. Well he sucks at maintanance and watching the truck... I've told him a year ago, but he wouldn't listen. Now, his truck broke down. I don't want him to get screwed by dealers or shops that will take advantage of him (he is still my cousin) so PLEASE, give me some names of shops we can trust to do engine work on 6.0 in Miami, FL.

I don't know exactly what the symptoms are yet cuz he is spposed to call me.. i'll update as i'm notified


Thank you guys!

UPDATE:
So, I talked to him, here is his story," Lately the truck has become acting weird while driving... It will buck and jerk and act like it's not running on all 8 cylinders. It smokes BLUE/black smoke (enough to smoke out the whole street and make people notice)
Someone told me to add diesel injector cleaner so I did. Nothing changed. So I kept driving it and it was getting worse and worse. I check the fuel pump and changed the filters with Motorcraft filters (my thoughts..phew atleast somethings right lol)
I drove it to fll it up with diesel thinking there is not enough, topped it off and it wouldn't start. So I left it for the night. (my thoughts... HPO leak)
I came back in the morning after talking to a mechanic and he told me to bang on the FICM a bit so I did..... checked for fuel and started it right up. (My thoughts, nothing he checked or hit made a difference...still a HPO leak.. HE thought him hitting the FICM made it better LOL... I Told him NEVER to do that again lol)
I started driving it and merging on the freeway and it started POURING out BLUE/black smoke like crazy, people were honking and getting mad. I looked at all my factory gauges and everything was fine... All of a sudden I get a CEL and the engine starts knocking... and Dies!
This is where we are at now.

(I told him he needs a scanner to find out the CEL. He should probably take it to a shop/dealer to get it FULLY scanned to figure out the whole issue.
That mechanic told him it is all because of a ruptured EGR cooler that it won't start. I told him BULL. Something is totally different from all "common" problems on 6.0's... No white smoke at all.

What do you guys think?

Quick Tricks is in Miami. Not sure what kind of repairs they do, but Rene also works at the Ford Dealership. Next closest place I can think of is Direct Injection, but Doug is up in Ft Lauderdale.
