6.7 Powerstroke to 6.7 Cummins swap?

I will be buying a new truck within the next few weeks, and I'm torn. I really want a Cummins, but I am not a fan of Dodge interiors. I absolutely love 2011-13 King Ranch interiors though. What I would really like is a 2011-13 King Ranch with a Cummins swapped in. Is this out of the question with all of the electronics and lack of room under the hood of new trucks, or is it a possibility? I know it would probably be expensive. I don't see anything about swaps on anything past 2010 trucks on Destroked...

Any ideas/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

If you got more money then sense, I say go for it.

My only question is what is the benefit of voiding your warranty for a motor with equal specs?

Stick with and don't look back... Cummins has their far share of problems.

Yeah, I'm thinking it would be too expensive to be worth it. I've also been looking at Outlaw edition 6.0s. I may go with one of them. The reason I wanted to do a swap is that I have a few friends with the new Powerstroke. One of them has dpf/def/egr delete and Spartan tuning, but even then it doesn't strike my fancy. I've always been a Cummins fan too.

I am a Cummins fan. That being said, I love my truck and think the 6.7 Scorpion is a great engine. I have a CCLB with 3.55s and have achieved over 20 mpg hand calculated. I am stock. That's pretty awesome.

I liked the 5.9 Cummins. My experience with the 6.7 Cummins is through peers. They are not as happy with it vs the 5.9. That being said, they still drive em!

Unless you found a 11-13 with a blown motor for really really cheap, I'd just rock the 6.7. They are solid motors once you get an aftermarket turbo.

Since the truck that's getting the donor engine would still have to comply with the EPA regulations and the 5.9 would not meet the 2011-Present regulations... You would have to use the 6.7 cummins but to me it seems like a nightmare.

FYI... I didn't vote because I don't feel like anyone how buys a 2011- up ford truck has to DEAL with the Scorpion 6.7. Great motor... Crappy turbo. Every single vehicle on the road has some sort of an issue with OEM parts.

Yeah. I'm not concerned with complying with EPA regulations. And I've actually decided to go with a 6.0 Lariat Outlaw. Thanks for the feedback though.
