    Any good shops or dealerships in the Phoenix area that work on Fords? The low pressure oil pump (also front seal) on my 7.3 started leaking. I know of Strictly Diesel but open to others.

    I take my 02’ F350, 7.3 to Rob Derman at Diesel Derminator, 602-570-1747 (Glendale, AZ). All he works on is the Ford diesels and specializes with the 7.3. He’s low key and doesn’t try to up sell extra stuff that’s not needed. If you go there, tell him Todd sent you his way.

    Strictly Diesel is good for Ford and Dodge. Used to go there when I had a 7.3 Excursion. Always a good experience. Duramax on the other hand would be better off at Copperhead Diesel.

    I called SD since they are in the N valley on a referral from a ford friend. They were freakin clueless on the head gasket process on a Duramax. Couldn't even quote me. Ended up talking to Sean over at Copperhead Diesel. That dude is real cool and helped me out. Gave me such good advice I took him a 30 pack of CL after I finished the shake down and needed a re cal on my VVT sensor.

    For future reference if you have a Duramax call Sean (the owner) at Copperhead Diesel.

    Good thread. I'm in Phoenix and shopping for a Diesel, and would need a shop to work on it.

    Does Strictly and Copperhead know their shit when it comes to making more power?

    If you want the best you get H&S motorsports product. My good friend owns it. Fleece is hard to beat for the Duramax.

    They don't tune anymore...I am talking hard parts. For tuning you go EZ Lynk for Ford.

    Keep in mind EFI is just the platform. There are a few good tuners for them...Dodge EZ also they do 2011 and up.

    What I gathered is ITP Diesel merged with Strictly. Dennis runs the performance side and the other guy runs the shop.
    I was having some trouble to. Called and explained the oil leak. LPOP leak out of main pulley. Can it be done in a day and can I be a waiter? It threw them for a loop. I, as a customer had to take control of what I needed done. They did it and no leaks. My truck is a service truck and can't be parked for more than a day. They weren't catching on to that even though I told them. I would use them again but am open to other shops but it was the same thing at those shops to.

    H&S got their ass kicked by the EPA as did Edge products, both from Utah I believe. IdahoRob from Boise at ATP trucks also got nabbed by the EPA and does not sell tuning or delete products anymore either. DuramaxTuner/MotorOps are good EFILive and/or EZLynk tuners for Duramax and I believe Dodge and Ford as well.

    Any of you guys done or known anyone that did a v10/cummins swap?

    I’m really thinking its the way to go with my excursion. I’d rather dump the money there rather than regear both axles.
