SRT-10 mechanic?

Does anyone know of a SRT-10 mechanic close to Dallas----besides the regular dealerships? Waco is 145 miles away and if it is an overnight job I have to get a motel to boot. Just wondering.

A few years back I remember reading about mechanics that had attended the Viper Engine certification/endorsement course. Dallas had a tech/mechanic listed on the site, so yeah there is...$0.02

Send a message via Yahoo to trussman
What's the issue? Possible that a regular tech capable to do what's needed.

Side note: I bring a ton of tools when I go on a road trip. Doesn't matter if I'm driving the 10 or the wife's 2013 Durango, even when it was brand new. I am determined to not be at someone else's mercy to fix something on the side of the road or tow to a shop I'm not familiar with. Good luck finding a good mech.

Needing plug wires, valve springs and lifters---plus gaskets of course. I am just not capable of doing the work any longer. 20 yrs ago, maybe but no way now.

If you need that much work and Scott can’t help you out this time, you may just need to take it to a dealership.

Hate to go to the dealership as I do not know their quality. I know what it should be but hear so many horror tails. Scott is almost 300 miles round trip and a 2 day job puts me in a motel or someone following me the 300 miles twice. I have a dealership 24 miles from home. Thought someone might know a good mechanic in the Big D area. God 3 kids in the area and at least could play with grand-babies.
