6.4 block with 6.0 parts???

My truck is still in the shop with a warp block. So I called yesterday for an update and I am told that pulled a 6.4 out that was bad but a good block. I am told they are going to take that block and build an engine for my truck. Is this possible since the 6.4 has a bigger bore, or can it be resleeved to make a 6.0? I know the shop's justification because it is all on their dime and they got some other customer to buy a new 6.4 engine. I could not find any threads that people have done this before.

Interesting. I know they made some inprovements to the 6.4 block, but idk if it can be swapped. BTW, I think the 6.4 just has a longer stroke than the 6.0...

I'll be watching this, which shop is doing it?

Let me elaborate... There is no passage way for the low pressure oil to feed the high pressure oil pump on the 6.4L. The 6.4L runs high pressure fuel not high pressure oil.

Just found this thread inthe 6.4 section.

6.4 compared to 6.0 with pics

Based on the pics/explanation, it doesn't seem to be possible. The passage for high pressure oil pump clearly isn't there.

Well I called the shop again (K&S Fuel injection) and the parts guy had told me the wrong thing. They had a customer buy a new 6.0 so the block from that motor will be used to make me a motor. Well at least now I know that the 6.0 and 6.4 cannot be mated.
