Where to have work done in MD?

I've got a mechanic lined up to do the headgaskets and studs in my '03 6.0 - but headgaskets are not their normal work. when first offered the work - they turned it down but came back to do the work when I couldnt find anyone else. But I didnt check here.

So - where in the preferable Southern Maryland / Annapolis / Anne Arundle / Calvert / area to get quality experienced head gasket & stud replacements in my truck. I also wanted the EGR plug / delete done (Ford dealer would be less likely to do this), a 4" downpipe added for future exhaust, and a new radiator. I understand the area I prefer may not be available - but what suggestions do you have?
Thanks..

Well, it ain't exactly your neighborhood, but it's not far either. Innovative Diesel is in North East (Cecil County). Might be worth a call. Haven't tried 'em and not sure how busy they are, but everybody seems to love Eric's tuning; I bet he could studs and gaskets without a problem.

Let me know who you end up going through. I'm in your area as well and am looking for a mechanic when I'm not willing to do the work.
