Trusted Shop in Hickory, Charlotte, Winston Area

I am considering doing mods now to my 2006 6.0. Like everyone else the mpg crunch is on. I use to get 15 around town, now I get 10-11 after the dealer flashed my truck when I had a tranny shift issue. Before I do anything, I want to get the Edge EGT probe installed. I am already running the Edge Insight monitor and before any tunes, I would really like to have the probe installed. So far, I can't find anyone to do it or trust. Anyone know of a good reliable shop that could do this work? I asked to dealer to do it and they refused.

You might contact Scott AKA Scuffy828. He has a shop in that area and he might know a thing or two about these trucks... Just kidding. I have to smack talk to Scott every once in a while!
