Bump bump bump, I'm thinking that would be a very major job. I'm no tech, but I think you would be into a major rebuild.

If you own a 7.3 truck, it would be far easier just to trade your truck in and buy a truck with a 6.0.

Why would you want to go from a very reliable engine to a very questionable one???

everyone has a reason.

I dont understand this one but it would require engine and trans. All the wiring for engine and trans and god knows what else. As a tech I just dont understand why anyone would do this. And Ive been pondering this for a few days now.

Yeah, I agree. Easiest solution is to just trade in and buy a 6.0.

Or keep the 7.3, they are a good dependable, near unbreakable motor. Why would you want to swap it out.
