detroit?

I'm on the edge of replacing injectors and am thinking about swaping a detroit 8v71 or a 6v71or some detroit. I used to know a guy that put a cat 3208 in one so im pretty sure the detroits will fit. Whats the length of a 7.3? I can measure one monday. Im a diesel mechanic by trade so im capable of doing this. Just want some thoughts and opinions good or bad and wondered if anybody has done this swap and ifso what was involved.

there's a video on youtube of a guy who put a detroit in his superduty. I think he had to put a body lift on it to get it to fit.
