Really good diesel shops in Phoenix???

Does anyone know of any real good diesel shops in Phoenix area that specialize, or are very good, at working on the 6.0?
I have 80k on mine, had the head gaskets, turbo, and egr cooler replaced at 60k, apparently due to the tuner, and am running stock now.
Before I start playing around with tuners again, I would like to know if there is a good, reputable shop I can take it too to get ARP studs once the head gasket lets loose again.

I do not know of any. Sorry. I do all my own work when possible because I have trust issues with mechanics that I don't know.

Check out this thread. Post #9 has a recommendation.

Good luck!

Yeah, I pretty much do the same on my own as well. Its not necessarily a trust issue, though I dont like giving mine up, but the shop rates for hourly work keep me from going. I know of one shop I had heard great recommendations about, just have to ask which one it was again as I cant remember!

Reliable Diesel in Mesa did ARP studs on my 03 6.0 for 3500. I know the owner from Boy Scouts. He has done alot of the work on mine and I think does a good job. I am just lazy these days and don't want to do my own work.

Thanks. It's just nice to have a reliable diesel mechanic shop to go to if i get in over my head on something.

What are some things i should do off the bat with this truck (2006 6.0 f250) besides change the oil and filter and what products do any of you recommend?

I at one time thought Reliable was a good place but some of the mechanics have changed and it seems the owner is not around as much to keep thing right, I would not go there anymore. Get gauges of some kind scan gauge is a inexpensive way to go. BPD is in mesa and I think they sell them off the shelf already programed, about 150.00 I think. Diesel filters online for motorcraft or racor filters I have rotella t-6 5-40 in mine at the moment. Find out what your delta beteen EOT-ECT is. I would flush and put cat elc in. Go to the 6.0 forum and read the tech folder from top to bottom lots of info there and alot of great people on the FTE to help with everything.
