Diesel Shop

Anyone know of a good diesel shop near southern WV? Perferrably one that does performance work and/or swaps? I've got 95% of my 4bt / 1995 F-150 swap planned out, but I can't decide if I wanna tackle it myself or bite the bullet and let a pro have at it. Only things that have me concerned are that I might have to modify that engine mounts from autoworldmt and trying to fiqure out the fuel system.

Modding the motor mounts shouldn't be that bad, if I have to. Just makes me nervous.

The fuel system is gonna be a challenge since I'm gonna have to do it from scratch. I'm thinking using a FASS lift pump/filter unit rather then reuse the stock gas fuel pump and a regulator or by pass line. But I have no clue on what size or types of fuel lines I need to use or how much fuel pressure from the lift pump I? HELP!!

There are a couple diesel shops in and around Morgantown.
Mech2161 can line you out on where they are.
See this posts about pulling.

Pmalsey was trying to get a shop together in Beckley/Charleston if I remember right.
But that is about it as far as I know for down south.
