I have no clue but I think it would be cheaper and easier to get just drop a 6.4 in your truck. It would be pretty sweet too. I am sorry for not really answering your question but after spending the money and time on it you'd rather get a 6.4

yeah true. the 6.4's are making some serious power and running awesome times at the track. if the twins were a direct bolt on, it would be worth it.

I'd say it wouldn't be a direct bolt-on. Considering the intake is on the opposite side and both the intake and exhaust-up pipes manifolds are probably different since there is all that emmissions recirculation crap.
But this is just from an OBS guy, i like simple things, but it could be done.
Also I dont like the sound of the 6.4 turbos. I'd go for a big set of twins to get that hardcore boost/sound.

This is what I was thinking of doing with my 05 PSD. I came across an identical truck as mine that was rolled, but the frame was still straight and the motor and drivetrain were fine. He only wanted $5k for the frame, wheels, motor and drivetrain. I was thinking of taking my body and placing it on that truck if it would work. What do you think? Not trying to hijack the thread, I just felt like this falls into the same idea as the OP.

being a single cab short bed you would be capable of having the fastest 6.4 as for the other guy, it is possible to exchange all super duty bodies
