question for all the huskers!

hey guys, I have an 87 F-250 with the 6.9L diesel. I am thinking about taking it somewhere to be timed and tuned up a little and I am wondering if anyone knows of any good diesel shops in the Lincoln/Beatrice area?

TwelveAlpha is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Lincoln has bupkis for a dedicated diesel shop that works on trucks. Theres like 3 places I know of that'll work on commercial vehicles. So when you see diesel in the yellow pages, that's what youre getting. The Int'l dealer on Cornhusker says they'll work on the Intl engines, but I havent tried them.
Matt at Anderson Ford is a pretty good diesel guy. Its a dealership, but he wont screw up your truck, or you in the process. Randy Wermuth at Diesel Specialties of Omaha sounds like more of the kind of shop you want, but its Omaha. 132nd and . . . I forget. North of W Center about 6 blocks.
Just general really good shop is Trade Center Auto, but they're not diesel specialists, so they'd bow out of engine work, but they'd do anything else (suspension, tranny . . . etc)

cln2po mentioned Husker Automotive in Lincoln just a couple weeks ago. Here is the thread:

Here was the info he posted in the Introductions thread:

Price was very reasonable and they informed me of thousands of $$ in aftermarket parts I didnt even know were on the truck when I bought it!

I'd just like to find someone locally (tri-cities) if possible.
Hope that helps you out... I don't have a clue about diesels

Sorry to say but I am not much help on that ol' girl. I have heard of Diesel Specialties and you could always check with Widick's up in Fremont. Sorry. Now if she were a 6.0 I could set you up real nice.
