What makes your motor done? As for the swap, it would be easier to do a 12v cummins

You'd be better off scraping the truck you have now, and buying a SD with the 7.3

I second Grayson's question

Just buy you a used engine,\. I have seen a few on craigs list for 1000-1800 dollars. They have between 90k and 150k miles on them but while the motor was out you could do arp head studs and buld it up real nice before you put it in.

I feel your pain mine just went out at 260,000kms. Put a used one in. Doing a cummins swap is way to expensive even if you can turn the wrenches your self. It take 80-110 hours to do the swap plus parts. No resale either after the swap. It sucks i know but educate yourself fix it up and move on. Putting a 7.3 is alot of work. I just purchased a low mileage used engine for 4500.00 delivered do not be in a rush good things come to those who wait.
