New to the forum, who's from Baltimore DC area?

Hi,

I'm new to the board and was wondering who was from the Baltimore/DC area. And if there were any recommended shops for working on the 6.0 around. I just got an 05 Excursion two weeks ago. I have replaced the seized unison ring turbo and installed a coolant filter. Next step is to get a scanner that will display Engine Oil Temperature so I can assess the oil cooler health. It's running ok, but I feel like it's not up to full performance. No codes since the turbo replacement. EGR valve looks OK. Yea, I know injector controller voltage needs to be checked as well.

And for those of you in the area, would anyone be interested in getting together for a beer and BS sometime?

Joel

Hey Joel, I'm up in Abingdon just off I95 at exit 77. I'm in Ga. At the moment but will be back sometime this weekend if I don't run over to see a friend in Alabama while I'm down here.

Nothing like spending the day with Bill Cohorn to make you realize how little you know.

Oh yeah, I'm back in Abingdon. Didn't go to Alabama after all.

Glad you made it back safely, my friend.

To the OP, I flew out to the DC area for a business trip and visited with Mitch. He's a GREAT guy and even paid for my dinner. We chatted for what seemed like a few hours and he's VERY knowledgeable about the 6.0's. He also will tell you like it is, so be prepared.

LMAO!!! That works fine by me, my brother. I can't imagine you with a pile of books on your head and learning to fold a napkin...

I'm in (Southern) Northern VA but the only place I know of around here is Adam over at Strokers Unlimited in Fredericksburg, VA. Bit of a drive for you though.
