Shop/Mechanic needed in Alabama, northern half

I need to find someone that really KNOWS the 6.5 anywhere in the top half of Alabama, my IP is on it's way out, I've been searching online and calling and I can't find anyone with experience on the 6.5, I also have new GP's and injectors that need to be installed, Diesel shops I've called either don't believe what I'm driving is factory, or tell me it's a 350" like the ones in the Cadillacs, or will only install parts I buy from them, but I have my parts, one place said they would only install their pump with a new PMD in the stock location, said the warranty would be void anywhere else, I'm already upside down on my Blazer so anything more I spend is wasted, but I like it too much to quit.

Quite curious, where does it say Blazer Silverado for the model? Curious because it LOOKS like a Tahoe.

1994 they were Blazer's, 1995 they became Tahoe's.

Check with City Diesel north Ala or maybe The Pump Shop in Mongomery. If they can't do it I am sure they can put you on the rigth shop in your area.
