I don't think you should do it either, the reliability of the 7.3 is unmatched by the newer Powerstrokes. Sure, they may feel like hot rods, but the 7.3 is a great workhorse that'll be on the road a long time.

I am not bad mouthing any of the Powerstrokes because I would love to have one of each. BUT having said that, I would keep the 7.3. Its a proven motor and is almost indestructable. A truck that is paid for is a lot easier to work,play, repair, modify etc... than a 40 to $60,000.00 truck is.

I would have to say that if they can take the interior out of a 2000 model mustang and put it in a 1960 model mustang, then SURELY it could be done in our trucks as well That would look sweet!

My wallet isn't fat enough. Pretty sure from what I have read there is a problem with hooking up the gauges and having them work, but 08 dash in a 2000 would be BA!

I know how you feel. I am looking at buying a nice CCLB 4x4 03 Cummins 6-speed just for a change, plus that Cummins motors really moves when you step on it.
