2012 6.7 PS motor in 2008 F450 KR, Would you buy?

I have a friend who is selling his 2008 F450 crew cab King Ranch truck with 88k miles. Last year his 6.4 went out and they swapped out motors with a 6.7 PS motor. He says it was a simple bolt up install. The DPF is disconnected. The new motor has around 20k miles on it. Truck is clean and he wants around 26k. Great price but a little scared about the conversion. Opinions.

Any pics of the setup? I figured it would be a lot harder than just bolting it up

All the computers would also have to be changed to. And I gotta believe the computers for 6.7L were all looking for different sensor that what a 2008 truck has. So there would have to be some kind of tunner involved to shut off the sensor.

I mean you have total different style injectors, different turbos etc. I'm no guru on engines, But I gotta believe your computers have to match the engine But if it's running good. Then who ever did the switch, probably figured all this out.

And I'm sure the wiring harness would be totaly different. That is something

That would be a monumental engine swap. Computers, harnesses, who knows??
