Looking for any updates on 6.0 mechanics in the San Francisco bay area

Anyone have any new information about good 6.0 mechanics in the San Francisco Bay Area? Thanks.

Since anyone can work on a chevy, I'm thinking they are referring to Ford powerstroke 6.0

I was thinking since the Ford 6.0 is always in need of repair, there must be plenty of good mechanics with lots of experience.

I dont believe so. 6.0 only ran 4 years in pickups and are relatively rare in vans. There lots of bad mechanics, and a few good ones. Part of the reason the 6.0 got such a bad rep.

I have 4 6.0 powerstrokes and 1 7.3 at the moment.
