Still looking for suggestions...I work in Quantico, VA and commute to the Eastern Shore, MD every weekend if that helps. I'd be willing to drive a ways to get decent work done. Thanks fella's!!

Get in touch with "Gilstan" on here...he is about to have studs done at Pasadena Diesel. They came highly recommended and he actually went there and spoke with the owner and took a tour of there shop and was very impressed. They do all of the work in house and have alot of experience with 6.0's. They're not the cheapest but from what I understand they are very professional. There is also TNT Diesel on the eastern shore but I DO NOT know how they rate

Like DaTank said I searched all over the Delmarva area and found a gem of a shop called Pasadena Diesel. It's a father son team that specialize in the 6.0 and they do their own machine work in house. I'm on their list for ARP's EGR delete, oil cooler ect.... They said they would call me in a couple of weeks when they had an opening. I,m hoping they call me this week. They quoted me a price around $4,700. After going to their shop and talking with them I decided that they are the only people that would touch my truck. Call them and talk to Bob. Their phone # is 410-360-4023. They are about 1/2 Hr. off your commute (Rt. 97 to Rt. 100 east)

Just talked to Pasadena Diesel today and they sounded right on the money over the phone. They sound like they are up to 3 months backed up though, which puts me in a bind because I move at the end of March. I will check into TNT and see how that goes. I'm just looking at getting ARP's put in and checking my injectors, oil cooler, etc. Sounded like it'll cost me around $3,000. Has anyone got ARP studs put in at the dealership? Any thoughts on that?
