Duramax Diesel in an F250

Well, I've constantly been looking around for this, And havn't seen a single person or website that has done a conversion for a Duramax Diesel into an F250. I think this conversion would be amazing because i love the power that you can get from the 6.6 with simple bolt ons along with the mpg, But i love the look of my truck. I just see alot of people putting cablummins in their fords, But never a duramax. If my truck ever blows up, I want to seriously do this. Has anybody found anything on this subject?

02' F250 7.3 Reg. Cab
-SOLD in '13
-Bought back October '15. Awaiting rebuild

2014 Cruze Diezzel.

I've seen guys drop Duramax engines in cars like 5.0 Mustangs and old hot rods, but never a Super Duty or Ram. Seen lots of Fummins though.

I mean it shouldnt be harder than a 24 valve just have to plug n play with the harness and all electrics. Maybe somebody will chime in if theyve seen this

There was a guy in Ohio that put a D-Max in a Super Duty. It was in Diesel Power a few months ago. I'll try to find it.

I'm not educated on the Duramax,but if I were looking at a Ford Super Duty and it didn't have a PSD, I would say NO thank you. These things go/go/go
