I'm still looking and deciding on what to do. My oil leak has not gotten worse but still a drip a day off the back of the motor.

About 30 minutes south of C-bus in Bremen is Unlimited Diesel Performance. They are the best Powerstroke shop your gonna find around. Nate builds a bunch of high performance motors, injectors, and is currently working on a set of injectors for me.
