Good Mechanic Needed

I am in need of a good diesel mechanic to look at my 01' Ex in the central Ohio area, preferably around Columbus, Dayton or Cincinnati. I live within an hour of each of those areas.
I have noticed performance issues with my Ex in the last 5 - 6 k miles or so. I have had it at the local ford dealer to look at the problem other than a glow plug needing changed and reflashing the cpu, they could not find anything major. They did test the boost and said it generated about 15 lbs. I change fluids and filters on a regularly and run 100% synthetic through out. My fuel milage has dropped by 5-6 mpg and the truck just doesn't seem to have the hp and torque like to should.
I have 140k miles on the truck and have no entention of getting rid of it any time soon.
What I want is to make the engine as reliable and bulletproof as possible. The 7.3 is a great engine and I know it will give me great service, I just want to set it up for the long haul.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreated.
