Minnesota shop that can do broken studs?

I'm looking for a Shop in MN that can remove my manifolds and broken studs on my 99' V10 F250, and install stainless headers and studs in place, that wont charge an arm and a leg. I dont have a ton of money, and these leaky busted up manifolds are driving me insane, along with how bad they smell in the cab if the windows are shut. >.< I'm located in Int'l Falls MN, would love to come down somewhere for a weekend and get these done, I could help also if needed (if its just a small 1-man shop or somethnig, lol). They can be accessed through the wheel wells, headers can also be put on this way.

If anyone can help me, throw me a PM or Email.

Sorry, haven't been at the chapter board for a while. I am unable to help...I don't use a shop, work on all my own stuff.

Not sure of any shops up your way, sorry. Maybe try a technical school for automotive. They usually work on public cars for the cost of parts.

Got them done actually, found a guy that did them for 375$. Like 14 studs broke when taking them out, took him almost a week lol, pretty much every stud was busted in the end.
