Where in Arkansas/TN/MS/OK to get studs done.

Could anyone recommend a decent diesel shop to do head studs, egr upgrade and oil cooler replacement on my 6L? I know of no where and I have never in my many years of driving/owning a car paid someone to work on my ride other than paying friends to help with my jobs. So I know of no shop to have this done. I'm willing to drive a few hours from SE Arkansas or even as far as Memphis or OKC. Just want to done right and done right the 1st time.

You might try BTS in lead hill AR. They are a transmission shop, but there are some seriously strong PSD's rolling out of there.

I can do your 6.0 work. I'll be in Stuttgart for a few weeks if that's more convenient for you than traveling a long ways. I have quite a bit of 6.0 experience so at least I can give you some good suggestions. What year is your 6.0?

I'll send npccpartsman a text to see if he might be interested. Last I talked to him he was working more than he wanted...but wasn't complaining about the $$$ on payday.

I wish I had time to do it but work and life are in the way at the moment. There's a place in Van Buren that comes highly recommended from a respected friend. He's had zero complaints so far and they do a LOT of trucks.
