Anyone around Harrisburg?

Looking for a good diesel shop around here, is there anyone that can point me in the right direction? I have a mechanic already but he's not all that comfortable working on a psd.
Any local get together that happens on a regular basis?

Thanks
Levi

Yea I live in Harrisburg. There aren't any others in Harrisburg that I know of. A few of us from around the state met in Carlisle a week or so ago for the truck show there. The only close diesel shop I know of is Hassler Diesel over in Bethel. They do all their work on Powerstrokes. I had them install my EGT probe.

For right now I'm just looking to have some gauges installed. I don't want to drill the manifold myself and I figured it would be an opportunity to find a shop in the area. I do most jobs myself but it would be nice to have a local place I trust for anything I can't handle.

Just the drilling. I'm fairly capable when it comes to working on vehicles but this is my first turbo. Not looking to screw anything up by getting crap blowing thru it.

with the drilling and taping you just do it dry so the snivlings don't stick and use a vaccum to suck them out.... I did mine it's not bad at all

It's a cast iron manifold (I'm pretty sure) so it's definitely done dry. Any cutting oil on that makes a sticky mess. I might give it a try myself because I'm ready to buy the gauges but haven't really found a shop I want to use. Are you around harrisburg?
