There is a guy that put a 6.0 in a bronco. I think that if you wanted a project like this, your best bet would be to find a crashed 6.0 truck for a parts donor. This way you will have all the parts and see how it's wired and hooked together, without having to piece-meal it with individual parts which would cost you more in the long run.

I would think it's doable, just need time and patience.

if you have a donor truck its a bolt in swap. if you have to buy the parts individually, it's going to cost a fortune.
