Looking for good diesel shop in Southeast PA

I live near King of Prussia and I own a stock truck. I am looking into doing some mods and I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good shop near me.

Area I live: Pottstown, King of Prussia, Reading (hopefully one of these towns rings a bell).

Crew Cab, Short Box
Straight piped (no muffler but rest of exhaust stock), 35" BFG A/T
DIY NAPA 6637 Intake
Zoodad mod (my version of it)
Leveling kit
TW Chip
NOW NEED WW b/c TW is giving me turbo surge
Future needs:
Guages
Exhaust System with Down Pipe and muffler (to help pass PA inspection)

I have a bone stock rig and i am looking into guages, pipe, AFE stage 2 intake, TW chip. The chip is last and I can do, the guages (maybe I can do), the exhaust and intake, is a no go for me to do. I want a professional.

So looking for parts and installer for those things.
Thanks.

if you can do gauges, i bet you could do the intake. it's not hard at all. loosen some stuff up, take some stuff out, put some stuff in and tighten it all up and you're good.

dont waste your time and money taking it somewhere to get those basic things done. there are a bunch of guys on here in the area that would prob be more than willing to give you a hand.

I work with a shop in Stowe(next to Pottstown) who are awesome and honest. But to be honest, I agree w/Zippy and say those upgrades are easy to do yourself...if your up for some friendly advice or assistance with doing them, I would be willing to help, just for sake of helping a fellow powerstroker.....if you do these upgrades and decide its time for more guts and glory, I also have another powerstroke tech in my area that I had do my head-studs and egr delete and does great work also...if interested, shoot me a pm
