Diesel Automotive Machine Shop

I will be replacing my oil cooler and doing an egr delete. I am going to go ahead and install ARP studs and Black Onyx gaskets as well.

I am in need of a great automotive machine shop in or near the Dallas/Fort Worth area to inspect and machine the heads. If you know of any please let me know. Please PM me if it is against the rules to post this info.

Why would you spend all that time and money only to install black onyx head gaskets?

I am going to add APR studs and probably upgrade the injectors too.

And the old gaskets may be compromised. Oil and EGR coolers went out and I don't want to do this twice.

What he's saying is you best stick with oem gaskets. BO gaskets have been failing quite frequently.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

I 110% guarantee you will be doing it again if you use black onyx gaskets. Only use Ford OEM head gaskets with this job. Black Onyx gaskets are junk.

Thanks for the heads up. First I've heard of that. That is why I love forums.

Any advice on a good local machine shop in North Texas? Or is Ford correct in stating not to machine the heads at all?
