6.0 head studs

Wonder if anyone can direct me to a good mechanic that can do 6.0 head studs? My neighbors son bought a 2006 6.0 and wants head studs done. We are located in Vincennes, IN, thanks in advance.

I feel bad for the kid, because the car lot lied to him and said "Sheid Diesel did all this work" and come to find out they lied.

Truck is running fine, he is just nervous being he owes 22,000 dollars, and he is only 16.

Do the coolant flush with an ELC coolant with EC-1 rating, coolant filter, add a monitor like an Edge Insight or Scangauge II, coolant filter, EGR delete and an SCT with custom tuning. As long as he doesn't beat the crap out of it, it will most likely be fine.
