Found one guy so far.

I found one guy that was highly recommended regarding his work. I don't know that first hand yet, because he is honest. With that I mean, he could have repaired my truck without telling me that all of the issues that it was having are covered under the 100,000 mile warranty. So he saved me $$$, but not time, cause the dealer is so backed up right now it is taking weeks for them to even look at it. His shop is Scatt's Automotive in Winder GA. Look him up if you are local. He is also interested in YOU telling HIM what the problem might be instead of acting like you are a total idiot and have no idea what you are talking about. Good guy.

I've got a shop in Snellville, not diesel specific but I run a few Powerstroke's through the door. Stop in and meet me, if you don't think I'm for you, no hard feelings.

Beyond that there is Leadfoot in Loganville and Wild Child's in Monroe, both are Powerstroke specialist. I'd stay away from the guy in Buford....no first hand experience, he just rubs me the wrong way.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.

I work for a racing shop on west side of Atlanta. We do a lot of diesel work now days. But ill be honest We take advice from two places. And they both are very educated in the 6.0/7.3 field. That's Stroked out in tallapoosa ga. The owners name is Toby. And the other is powerstroke specialty in buford. Owners name is bill. Which I've delt with several times. But Scott is the one who's going to help you the greatest their.
