6.0 HPOP

I was just sittin here thinking of stuff, and was wondering why couldn't us 7.3 guys put a 6.0 HPOP on our trucks. I realize they probably mount completely different, but couldn't you fab something up? The reason i thought of this, is because when we go to bigger injectors, or sometimes even just the stock injectors, we run low on oil pressure and loose power. It seems like the 6.0 never has a problem with that, even with bigger injectors.

Do i have a good idea or is it not even possible?

Anything is possible but I really don't think it would be worth it

why go through the hassle of trying to fab everything when you can buy a brand new stealth pump. whole lot easier if you ask me.

Well no one here has knowingly installed a 6.0 turbo on a 7.3 until recently we found out. Maybe you could be the 1st
