Who in western Washington can install gauges?

I want a boost and pyro gauge installed into my 2011 3500. I went to Dynomite diesel yesterday and they couldn't do it. My dad has had bad luck with the Power shop. Does anybody know of any other shops that do good work for a reasonable price? I guess the install in these new pickups can be pretty complex.

I have been told it's not so easy on the duramax. I don't want to mess my pickup up.

^ Says who? If you can drill and tap a hole you can install them. Very simple IMO.

However if you still don't feel confident in doing so, where exactly are you located? I'm sure there are some local members over there that would be willing to help you out.

Does the turbo need to be taken off to install the boost gauge?

Are you against using an edge insight? Really simple install, it reads boost from pcm (i think the LMLs are pretty acurate), and you would only have to drill in exhaust for pyro....and if you cant do that, any decent Auto shop could (not just a diesel shop)

just realized u have a minimax which shows boost, guess u want a real gauge
