6.4l with 6.0l issue

Well I thought I would ask this if I still had my 03 F-350, which is still issue free. But my 08 F-450 what I think is a blown head gasket needs a new motor at 108k miles! Ford doesn't seem to want to help, so does anyone know if a 7.3l will go into this truck? if so what needs to be done?

It's still at the dealer so I have not got into the motor myself nor has ford. The oil is contaminated with water it was using 2-3 gallons of water a day, but the oil was not over full. They are telling me the best way to fix it is a new motor for $17k. I have a 99 7.3l that runs great I was thinking of putting in it.
I have also seen people use a 5.9l Cummings, does anyone know if the cab has to be removed to install this motor?

If its out of warranty get it out of that dealership and find a good diesel mechanic near you. I cracked a piston in mine and I know if I would have taken it to a dealership they would have insisted on installing a new motor. Instead I took it to an independent shop and they replaced only what needed to be replaced and I was out 5 grand instead of 17

the cummins swap is easier since there are companies that make all the adapters for the motor trans etc and standalone controllers for the tranny

the 7.3 would be an emissions violation and not a common swap si I imagine it would be a biotch

I would just find a low mile 6.4 or fix what issue yours may have unless it's a block

Thanks guys, I had it to the dealer to see if Ford would step up since it has only 108k miles. I plan on getting it out and I'm looking at options as I need my truck for hauling my equipment, the 99 works ok till I get 15K lbs behind it.

Get a pressure guage setup on the degas bottle. If you have bad HGs, you will see pressure rise in coolant system when you hammer on the skinny pedal. If you dont see that, thats not your issue.

Head gaskets normally don't contaminate the oil. It sounds more like an EGR related issue but you still could have bad head gaskets.
