Local Shops - Central / Southern IL

Any recommendations on mechanics in the neighborhood?

My friends at the local dealership seem to think I need some head gaskets. They're also under the impression that the motor has to come out if I want studs instead of bolts. $45xx, I provide the studs, and no warranty of course.

Anybody want to chime in on a good or bad experience near here? I could use another opinion.

What's the name of the shop in Peoria? I've also heard there's a good shop down in Litchfield, can't remember the name.

Thanks, guys. I'm going to check with River City today.

The Extreme Diesel link isn't working for me, and I can't find them in the google local. Got any contact info?

Any comments on Area Diesel in Carlinville? PM me if they're not fit to print.
