If you are talking about Mac's, he does great work. There is also Texas Diesel Power in weatherford that does good work, but Im not sure they would be cheaper...I know a guy that had total rebuild done there last summer, Ill try and get ahold of him and see what it cost.

I don't need one, the cp3 is good for 600-1000hp. I'm just gonna get a rail pressure gauge....do a mod or two to the rail and I'm good.

Automotive Machine in Stephenville will do a good job for a fair price. Pete is a great guy and has done a bunch of these. I dont know if you need to have it R&R'ed or if you are doing it yourself. Pete usually just done machine work, but Glueck's Towing between s'ville and Dublin will do it all and have Pete rebuild it if you need that. Both are good guys and fair.
