experience with First Coast Diesel Performance?

Anyone on here have experience with these guys working on your truck?

I'm starting to shop around for purchase and install of a 4" turbo-back and EGR delete on my '06.
FCDP is only about 50 miles up the road from me, so I thought I'd see if there were some good or bad vibes floating around out there.

Would also be interested in any other recommendations for central FL shops.

I'm about an hour each from Ocala, Gainesville, and St. Augustine.

Thanks

Bought my exhaust from them back in June. Excellent customer service. Never heard a bad thing about them. Not sure why they aren't around here anymore.

All the feedback I've seen has been very positive. I'm damn particular about who works on my truck and I'd feel comfortable leaving it with them.

Good on ya for doing some research first. Its refreshing to see this instead of the "I bought injectors from Pensacola Diesel and they're junk" threads.

Adam used to hang here. Last I saw he only did PSN but that may have changed. He has a good reputation for a decent shop and has been know to go way out of his way to help out someone in a jam.

10-4, thanks for the responses.
I had dug up a few old threads that were all pretty positive, but then they dropped their sponsorship on the org and had nothing posted in the last year or so.
Just trying to make sure nothing bad went down with any members that might have caused them to bail.

I'll probably give them a call, but I'm still trying to figure out why their delete kit costs so much. I know they send you a whole new intake, but they get the old one back.
Is it really that much better than any of the other kits that cost half as much?

In my opinion, yes. They make a better EGR delete than a lot of places. There's only one other company I think makes a better kit.

I had them do some minor stuff on my truck when I bought it. I bought my truck from Gibson's Truck World and took it by FCDP for a look over/egt install. Adam runs the business and the other Adam is the lead mechanic. I would take her back for all of my work but moved to Colorado.
