Shop near Alpharetta/Roswell/Cumming area?

I have a deleted '08 F250 that whistles under boost and sometimes has diesel exhaust smell inside cabin. I suspect it's either the up pipes or perhaps a broken stud at exhaust header.

Need to have this checked out and fixed. Anyone know a trustworthy shop northside of Atlanta?

I know there has been a lack of replies, but folks are how folks are and it's routine for us to clink on email links and not check the rest as part of normalcy. I'm guilt of it myself, and just happened on your post right now, and not the other few times I've been on here tonight. The "Talking Soot" thread is where most folk check, and is the better place to post. I'll link a post to here and will hopefully get you a response soon.

Aside from that, all I can offer is "Should have bought a 7.3".

I live in Roswell and drive to Monroe just for oil changes. A former member of ours is a phenominal mechanic. Quite a drive though.

"Speed" off Alpharetta Hwy is where I get my oil changes for the work car, and they've always been great. Not many can work on these F250s though!

I'll double down on Dark Horse. If they're in your proximity, use them. They know what they're doing and will treat you right.

I was recommended to dark horse diesel fort exhaust leak in my 7.3 as well, ended up taking it to Cherokee tire to have some manifold bolts drilled, they are also 2.6 miles from me, easy enough to tow and cheap there, but if I could afford to I would have paid the tow bill to dark horse
