Talking Swap 6.2 for 6.7

Found a 2011 f250 with a 6.2 that was flooded. Also found a 2011 f250 with a 6.7 powerstroke but the back is smashed no engine damage. How hard would it be to drop the powerstroke in the gasser?

Well you will have everything as I assume u will have to pull the gauge cluster/dash and internal wiring harness etc. but should be doable. But not gonna be easy by any means I wouldn't think. The wiring will be a major pain in the ***. But at least you should have complete harnesses fuel pumps etc. hell you have to get that damn urea tank as well. Gets uglier by the minute as I type. Lol

Haha it does get uglier the more you think about it!

The fuel door/bed for the 6.7 got smashed? I thought I read the diesel suspension is different up front too. For the heavier motor?

Yeah the suspension is different. If I were you OP, I would go ahead and delete all those emissions systems. That way you can just install a straight pipe instead of worrying about reinstalling the urea tanks and the DPF. It will be a hard road but it will probably end up cheaper than the 8 grand they charge you from the factory if you do it yourself. Make sure you get a list of all that is different on the diesel trucks including suspension, brackets and what not. Good luck

your not going to have a warranty anyways right? That would be a sweet custom truck, if everything was done right...

If the fronted on the 6.7 truck is good u should just be able to move front coil springs and any other suspension differences over. I would think the rear suspensions are the same usually only diff is heavier duty/stiffer coils because of the added weight of the diesel versus gas motors

Cool

They are both f350's so I don't know if the suspension will be different already and this is sound like like more and more work but then again the outcome will be sweet!
