6.0/6.7 Conversion? Has Anyone Tried it Yet?

Does anyone know if you can convert a 6.0 into a 6.7? It seems to me that if you could buy a crate 6.7 from Ford the conversion would be rather straight forward. Any ideas???? Techs out there, what are your thoughts?

I think the 6.7 is a lot bigger than the 6.0. not sure how the trans would do. a crate 6.7 is near imossible to get and more expensive than you can imagine

Would need the PCM wire harness transmission and a bunch of other stuff to do it. Instrument cluster from a 6.7 truck as well

I think I read somwhere that when Ford went to the 6.4, that they re-did the front clip to accomodate a bigger radiator or intercooler or maybe both. So you would need to look into if it was re-designed again for the 6.7 .

Yes, they redesigned to fit the 6.7. If you remember the test mules the 6.7 didn't fit in the 6.4 engine bay. That doesn't mean an enterprising individual couldn't make it fit but it isn't a simple bolt in.
