6.0 problems any advice would be great

I have a 06 F250 lariat crew cab I have 150,000 on the motor and I noticed the heads were starting to leak and the oil was a light brown in color, not sure what that means. But I do have a 97 7.3L with turbo, computer and the wiring harness.

You got other replies in other threads but I'll reply here too.
Heads leaking? What does that mean.
Light brown oil probably means coolant. You need to do monitoring of motor sensors to see what's wrong. And do LOTS of reading.

We need alot more info before we can help you sir.
1) where are heads leaking?
2) what head is leaking?
3) coolant can be slick just like oil so it needs to be determined what it is!

check top of motor and make sure oil cap and filter is ford and not aftermarket as they tend to leak, the leaks on top can follow the crevis where head meets block and follow that to rear of motor and bell housing area.

Yes, that would help!!
Ok... I took it to the dealership to have it checked out and they told me I had 3 bad injectors, my ficm wasnt putting out enough voltage and my drivers side head gasket was starting to leak. So I was online looking and found a site where a ford technician was doing a video on diesels and how they hammer when you first start and the test procedure they do. 1 of the things he Suggested was putting a new ficm in because its not always the injectors, so I bought a 58V super swamps ficm and it started great!!! My sons truck broke down so I let him drive to work. Well it ran out of fluid and overheated he drove it home and it sat overnight. The next morning I put coolant in and after a couple of seconds it started running rough and blowing water out the tail pipe. I shut it of and left it sit a while drained out the fluid and went to start it again to try and dry everything, well it hydro locked on me, so I thought I could bump it over and try and try and push the water back out.... Well that worked but I wound up with water in my oil.
Unfortunately I found out that was NOT the right way. I don't have a lot of experience with diesels.
I do have a 7.3L for free complete with computer and wiring harness, would it be cheaper to fix my 6.0 or put the 7.3 in?? I think I might fix my 6.0. Any and all advice will be appreciated!!!!
Thanks

It would be cheaper to fix the 6.0 as long as nothing is bent.
