need a good performance shop

So I have a blown motor and ford is not going to warranty the motor. I have about 20k to spend and I would like to do something that would net 550 to 650whp. Ive never been a big diesel guy and have no clue where to send it to get it built. Im in nc and would like to stay somewhere close if possible, can anyone make any suggestions?

Where are you located?

Elite Diesel has a decent offering for a set of aftermarket stuff, but it's hard to make much more power above stock currently...they're running out of fuel.

Ahh...didn't see that.

I have ZERO, READ NO expeirecne with Spartan Diesel Technologies in any way shape or form, aside from helping grandpa order his DashDaq with Spartan tunes.

I would do a LOT of looking around before taking your truck to Spartan. I'm not bashing, or calling Spartan inferior, just simply stating that it might be a good idea to look around at some stories.

I too am wondering why Ford will not warranty it. How did you blow the motor? What mods do you have?

The truck ended up missing 12 quarts of oil somehow and they are not willing to warranty it.
