Good shop for head stud replacement.

Hi all,

Im in elizabeth city and looking for a good shop some where with in 2-3 hours to do a head stud replacement for me on a 6.0. I will be getting a truck in the next year or two and want to get advice now rather than later when its too late. Would like not to spend more than 3k, but for a good job I will pay more if needed. Thanks in advance.

Brian
