Swapping Out the 6.4L Diesel Engine

I have no plans at this time to swap out my engine, but what I'm wondering
is if/when the time comes that my 6.4L dies and I need a new engine, is their a Cummins Diesel engine that can be installed into a 2008 F-250?

If I had to guess just about any of them would fit in the Ford engine bay. Call destroked in Colorado, they will know exactly what it takes to put the various cummins engines in a 6.4.

If you do a EGR delete, DPF delete and head studs why would you want to swap a cummins instead of a 6.4?

What he said because if you have inspections your truck will not pass either way so you might as well just put money into the 6.4 and it will have double the power of the cummins and be basically bullet proof where the cummins you would be throwing down some serious $$$

Thanks. I thought their was a Cummins engine that was better than the 6.4L.
Guess not... As for the deletes, that is still on my wish list.

as long as the engine you install is 08 or newer, it will absolutely pass inspection

I love the 6.7 Cummins, but I think it would be a waste of time/money to swap one into a 6.4. you could build a nice bulletproof 6.4 and have money left over

not a joke... a lot of people appreciate and recognize the strength and reliability of the 6.7 Cummins. Including FORD!!!!!!! Which is why it was available in the Ford F650-850 when the 6.4 Powerstroke WASN'T!!!!!

to discount the viability of the Cummins is just blind foolishness

But, converting a 6.4 equipped super duty is an expensive undertaking. It's one of those things where if you have to ask, you probably shouldn't do it
