Anyone in the southern MD indian head/waldorf/laplata area?

Hello everyone, first post in the md section. Coming here looking for a member or someone who may know someone. Have a pretty big project to do on my 2000 7.3L. Have something wrong on cylinder #4 think a bad injector caused some issues ended up breaking 2 push rods, and snapping the bracket that holds the pushrod seats down. Basically looking for either a mechanic who can do it on the side, or a place i can pull that head off at and check the damage. Just got stationed here and really dont know anyone or anything about the area. Possibly looking at a new motor or complete tear down and rebuild, or if someone on here wants to lend a hand on a fun project a 5.9 cummins swap.

Really lost though and the trucks been sitting for 3 weeks now, i swapped the push rods hoping i could just limp her around and now it POURS blue smoke, from under the hood, and the tail pipe at all rpms and temps. I have a brand new 4" down pipe and new IH bellowed up pipes waiting to be put on, a brand new rebuilt stock turbo with the early 99 wheel and full re seal kit as well, if anyone could offer a hand or advice id greatly appreciate it. Just want my old girl running again.

If not she sits for a couple months and a haul her back to the shop in ohio and im gonna pour some money into her
