Diesel injector rebuild in the tristate area - where?

Folks,
I hope this is the best section for this question.

My Volvo Penta TAMD31L needs its injectors rebuilt. It should be a very standard procedure, but I do not know who to go to. Can anyone recommend a reliable shop in the north east? These are Bosch injectors so I suppose any Bosch authorised service center will do, but I'd rather deal with a known quantity if possible.

What "tristate area" ?

Sorry. NJ / NY / PA.

GA would also work, but the injectors came north with me so it would be easier to find a local place.

Edit: in reality anywhere relatively near would work, mail works. The issue is, the only place I found with any feedback at all is a very nice outfit in Oregon. That is... less desirable.

I went to a local guy on Long Island. He works on a whole bunch of stuff, including diesel electric trains. He also said he does the injector and pump rebuilds for a well known online diesel parts source. Very nice guy, very knowledgeable and helpful. He even let me borrow a compression test kit.

Thank you sir, I'll put a call in and see what he says.

I wonder if he also does decoking of turbochargers and manifolds... previous owner was one of those 'never run the engine hard' guys and as a fully expected result he changed a turbocharger every 1000 hours...

Precision marine in New Rochelle work on Volvos and Yanmars, in my dealings with them they have been good and honest.

I think he does. I remember talking to him about a LARGE turbo he had on the counter that had the same issue, never ran hard enough.

Mirelos, thanks for the further advice.

I talked to the gentlemen at East Coast and they seemed helpful. I'll send them the injectors tomorrow and see what happens.

I also give thumbs up regarding Precision marine; they provided great service when I called upon them.
