Shop near Augusta?

One of my coworkers was having some collision repairs done on his Duramax and the guy at the bodyshop recommended a diesel mechanic near Augusta to him. Unfortuantely he can't remember who or where it is. Apparently the guy is pretty awesome and builds diesel dragsters or something and has won some awards.

Does anyone know who and where this could be? I've been doing almost all of my own worj on my truck, but want a reputable shop to go to (other than the stealership) for things that are out of my comfort zone.

I'm pretty sure it isnt Trucks n Moore or Leadfoot.

I dont know much about them personally, but these guys crush it at the sled pulls and they are polite to talk with.

Thanks, I'll look into them. I don't know what it is about Augusta... It's a decent size city, but it just doesn't have alot of stuff.

I visited there once, it seemed like a more of a suburb than anything.

The only other two I know of are:

Leadfoot: Diesel Performance Parts | Lead Foot Diesel Performance

Garmons: Garmons Diesel Performance, Inc.

But I got nothing more than a name, never talked to em.

Yeah, the Augusta area isnt really a city with suburbs. More like a bunch of suburbs of varying quality lumped together in a big blob.

Depending on what he is looking to do I would recommend Richard at Meeks auto and truck or Chris and Kevin at o & c diesel injection.

I don't think he needs anything done now, but I'm still looking for a shop.

I'm looking for a place that does normal repair work and can do a thorough check-up on my truck. I want to make sure all of the "need to do" stuff is done before the "want to do." I've been doing the work on it myself, but it would be nice to have someone with more knowledge and experience have a look at it.

After that I want somewhere that can do injectors and maybe the BPD oil cooler - I'm not fooling with that.

I guess O & C can do injectors seeing as it's in the name...
