Will a 6.7 go in the place of a 6.4?

Can one of the newer 6.7 engines go in the place of a 6.4 in a 2008 F-350 King Ranch?
Also have heard that there are kits that I could buy to install a Cummins motor into this type of truck. Is this true? And is it worth it?

It would probably take more work than what it would be worth. Especially since you would be replacing the 6.4 with an inferior engine.

I'm OK with brand bashing, but not engine bashing like that ^^^^.

Not cost effective, but I agree with the inferior engine statement... the 6.4 has stronger rods, better turnoff, more capable fuel system, etc.

If you understood the vast differences between the engines and trucks, you wouldn't even be considering this swap

Your probably right drunk on diesel just sounded like a cool concept. I really barely know much about the 6.4 aside from the basics. And when it comes to the 6.7 I havent a clue. Just liked the idea of better MPGs. I also hear a lot less about the 6.7 breaking down. Also I really like the 6r140s that come behind them. So ill probably just wait till someone with to much money and time decides to do it so I can watch.
