Looking for shop recommendations in DFW!

Looking for some major help here guys. I just moved to Sherman, which is about an hour north of Dallas. The truck is a 2005 6.0L. I was towing my boat up here and the truck ran low on coolant and blew my EGR cooler. Truck blows white smoke but runs fine. Generally mechanically inclined but I am very limited on tools and in an apartment complex. I really had no choice but to attempt a cooler delete and new oil cooler. Got down to having the turbo out and don't have the proper tools to finish. What I am looking to do is just have it towed to a shop and have them finish the job. Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction. I know finding a shop that will take your parts is kinda hard but its an OEM Oil cooler, RCD delete kit and the updated STC fitting. My email address is scotty719@yahoo.com if you have any recommendations.

Appreciate the help

Scott

Just having issues busting the fuel lines apart without bending the hard lines and the exhaust bolts are kicking my butt. I just don't want to do any further damage that will cost me more money.

Still looking! Would like to get my truck up and running and its going to have to be towed. I used to live in Houston and that would have been convenient but life doesn't work that way.
