Caterpillar?

Has anyone thought about doin a engine swap like this? I think it would be really cool to put a 6 cyl. Cat engine in for the powerstroke. Maybe im just crazy.

And if anyone on this website has been through a Cat program to become a mechanic at their dealers. I leave this fall to go to the one in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and was wondering what it was like.

Cat engines would be rather large to be putting in these trucks. Once you do get it in and running, working on it would be a real bear.
