For the cost of things i would pull out that one and have it rebuilt. Balanced and blueprinted will do wonders for it i am sure

Like he said, I would just rebuild it or buy another 6.0 for it. The size of the 7.3L is not an issue, because up to 2003 they came with 7.3L's. The problem is everything else, wiring, transmission, etc. It could definitely be done, but its quite a project.

There is always the Cummins route if you want to go that way. Lots of sources for that conversion.

thank yall for the insight....so basically just let the shop replace the piston and rod and dont worry about changing engines out, but if i did go with the CAT or Cummins route due to ease of installation?

I'd have it fixed. Or rebuild it yourself. To do a cummins swap correctly your looking at 10k+ in parts.
