6.7 Swap

I know this "idea" sounds crazy as hell, but what are some thoughts on removing my 6.7 from my 13' and putting in a fully built, completely refurbed with all new upgraded parts from the ground up 6.0? Like i said, sounds insane, but i think i'm seriously obsessed with the brute sound of the 6 liters. From the rough-sounding clacking upon startup to the ridiculously loud turbo whistle at idle There's nothing like it. I could've easily bought a 6.0 and have what im looking for... except for the updated style, interior, and features of my 13. I want the best of both worlds. Any thoughts, concerns, or input on this "potential" plan?

Mission impossible. Not sure how the ECU from the 6.0 would interface with the 2013 inputs.

I think you would end up with a car similar to the one Johnny Cash build from his song, One Piece at a Time.

You would have a very hard time passing emissions. The way it works is which ever truck or engine is newer has to follow the emissions rules. Plus I think it would be a electrical nightmare.

Put a non vgt turbo on and it'll sound more 6.0ish. As for the clanking, run the SOB low on oil a few times to get the bearings talking.. . . ..
