Is there anything wrong with the truck now? Any motor problems? I wouldn't touch the motor if there isn't any need to. If you want to swap in a 6 speed, thats cool, definitely front end conversion and then call it a day. Save your money for when something breaks and needs to be replaced.

i agree, if the motor is fine and your not going to high power gains then leave it in. do all your other mods first.

x3. If the motor runs good there's no reason to mess with it... Unless you're going for big power.

Don't touch it until it breaks.

That's your most economical solution.

Actually, let me eat my words. Put a new front end on that thing, but don't touch anything else.

FWIW, I've got 305K on my 7.3 now. Just did a 2K mile round trip towing my enclosed car trailer with a car in it to Washington and back. Doesn't and never does skip a beat. I'll run it until it goes, and then rebuild/replace it and keep running the truck.

see i want to do it all at once get it repainted and the trans swap and the motor redone instead of buying a new truck. it's my cheap way of getting a new truck. i had thought about just leavin the motor alone and get a loan to do the rest but what if something happens to the motor than i've got a nice painted truck and a new trans with a dead motor
