Recommendations...

I'm looking for a great Performance Diesel shop - I have a 2002 F350 with a some miles (140,000) on it, and now would like to break the seal and start tweaking it for more performance. My diesel knowledge is poor at best, so far I've added the gages and put a DP Tuner on it - but nothing else. I'd like a reputable shop to go to who has been there and done that, who understands the in's and out's of the 7.3 psd. I understand the pmr's limit what can be done with power gains, but 350 rwhp is just fine - if I could get there and maintain reliability - I would be more than happy Any suggestions for central CT performance shops???

We're our own performance shop. There really aren't any good shops in CT I'd trust my 7.3 to.

We've got a club of Seven Three Powerstroke owners in the north east area known as North East Seven Threes aka: NEST

We've done just about everything imaginable to the 99-03 7.3s aside from rebuilding a transmission. We've done injectors, turbos, hpops, up-pipes, intercoolers, trans coolers, valve bodies, etc.

It's really no big deal. Just order your parts from Clay at Riffraff and come out to a meet you'll learn a lot and you'll know how to fix stuff yourself if it breaks.

Our next meet is in East haven, CT on May 22nd we're doing injectors and a turbo on a lifted 7.3 if you're interested in coming let me know and I'll PM you the street address and my cell # if you want/need it.
