Need help! Quality shop?

Looks like head gasket failure is beginning to happen to my 2006 F 350.
I've asked a few shops up this way and I get a very different take from shop to shop.
I don't mind spending a little more $$ if the work is exceptional.
I'll take her anywhere in Ct. Ma. RI.
Just want it right!
Any suggestions?

Thanks. Todd.

I have used this shop professionally with an entire fleet and personally with the stuff I didn't want to do. Never had any problems. Very thorough and fast

Ect 190to195 Eot 196to204 empty
Ect 205to220 eot 210to225 towing
Fan kicks on and the temps tumble down quickly.
Deltas are 4 to 8 degrees, even pulling my 5th w.
Egr. valve nice and dry.
No white smoke or antifreeze smell.
Pukes coolant only while towing under load.
Found combustion leak when tested.
I WISH it was the Egr.!

Sounds like you did your homework. I don't have a recommendation but good luck.
