Yes, I think at this point it might be flatbed time.
I spoke to that Bosch center (thank you for link BTW) and the service manager was kinda meh on the diesels.
I'm going to call around town and compare some shops - usually a city this size has 1-2 indy dealers with a guy or two in back who REALLY knows these diesels. Atlanta had 1 that was great, if you didn't mind the front-of-shop staff gauntlet.
Considering this part will dictate whether or not the car gets junked, I want to be somewhat comfortable with the shop. I've got a good friend who is a diesel truck mechanic back home, and I have seen many times what goes on in the back with the 20-something overworked/underpaid greasemonkeys under the hood.
