Need Shop Recommendation, South East Texas

I noticed a pretty substantial oil leak yesterday coming from the area of my oil cooler. I've replaced the orings and gaskets for that a couple of times already but my leak seems to come back about every 4 months or so. This time I really don't have the time or energy to fight it.

I'm looking for a shop recommendation in the Bryan/College Station TX area, anyone had any good or bad experiences in the area?

Dont know about the area but did you use OEM gasket kit? Did you make sure the end caps were not corroded?

David Lott has a "sister" shop in Brenham; about 40-45 minutes away. He is well known for his Powerstroke prowess in the Houston area and the diesel racing community. He is only one I know of, or recommend, at this time that is near.

I did not use OEM gaskets, I found a cheap set from the local parts house made by Fel-pro. I guess I'll have to order a set of OEM from Guzzle and give it a shot.

Id the emd xaps are not corroded the OEM seal will work, aftermarket gaskets dont hold up to well.
