Anyone With AE in Wichita Area?

Looking for a good shop in the Wichita area or a member with Auto Enginuity who wants to make an easy $50. Before I put any money in this truck I want to get a buzz test and a cylinder contribution test for an 01 7.3. Also, before I spend $370 on the AE I would like to see what it does on my truck.

Thanks.

Potwin service. Alan is super nice about doing that for a little bit of nothin. I have a friend with a snapon diagnostic tool but he's a gas guy. Really really good but he's just flat scared of diesels. If you need help holler and i'll pm you my number. I've rebuilt a few powerstrokes. Between me and another friend of mine who is a certified diesel tech we can get you running.

Potwin is a ways out when you work 14 hour days but I'll definately keep them in mind. I only get every other half sunday off so I was hoping to find someone in Wichita so I could minimize time away from work. I appreciate the response though.

Oh, truck runs fine but before I start to put money into performance stuff like chip or gages I'd like to know if I might have a weak injector or two or how my HPOP is doing. Right now I'm debating between buying gages or the AE, right now it's either one or the other. Gages would be cool and an immediate gratification but I just know if I spend $370 on the AE, sure as ****, I'll never have another Ford again to use it on.

Corey Buthe (pronounced boo-thee) owns a shop just west of Augusta called Pro Diesel and is a damn fine mechanic. I'm getting ready to pay him to do an EGR delete/stud job/oil cooler for me and he came in far better price-wise than most others. I also worked with him out at MAFB so I know he's a straight shooter.

He is a really nice guy. He was the only one out of all the mechanics in wichita or eldorado to spot that i have ambulance wiring in my early 99. Ambulances were the first 99's to roll off the assembly line so the first few f-350 pickups made had their wiring harness. Sorry. Just a bit of useless interesting info.

I already talked to him about it once for the diesel day at mid america a while back. He was all for it but i guess had some family emergency and couldn't. His dodge is making respectable power on stock injector last time i talked to him. And if he doesn't want to do it there i own 80 acres to do it on. I'm thinking the lot out front of his shop doesn't come with the lease. I'm pretty sure that's what he told me when i was in there talking to him. You might still ask him though. I hate to give false info.

P.s. here's a quick plug for myself(sorry guys for the commercial). That certified diesel tech friend of mine is kendall. He and i are going to start a performance shop when i get my building put up. I asked corey if he would do performance stuff in the future and he seemed pretty sure he wouldn't. So with him giving a no we decided it would be a prime opportunity for us. I figured i'd throw that out there to kind of give a heads up to the local diesel community. We don't have a diesel "pro shop" so to speak of around here.

Nothing like putting a post up asking for help then forgetting I put it there.

I forgot about Pro Diesel. I never get around Augusta but I do remember driving past a couple of times. I'll try to give him a call in a cuuple of days.

Thanks guys.
