How hard is it to install one of these on my 7.3?

Not hard - More time consuming than anything.

Loosen the AC condensor, pull it forward slightly. Unbolt the side bolts on the 7.3L cooler. Unbolt the bottom bolts through the slot in the bumper (if ya have a license plate, helps to remove it.) Remove the lines from the tranny cooler and remove out the the top.

Get some 1/2" hose, some step down adapters (1/2" to 3/8") 6.0L has 1/2" nipples, truck has 3/8" hose to the tranny. You may need some hose clamps on either side of the adapters.

The 6.0L cooler bolts in place of the 7.3L cooler. Attach some 1/2" line to the new cooler, install the adapters, install the 3/8" line to the adapters. Make sure everthing is tight. Start the truck, shift in reverse and then drive a few times to see if it's shifting okay. You may have to add some fluid since the 6.0L cooler is bigger.
