I have a 2003 F250, Crew Cab, 4wd, 6.0 Litre, i do like the truck, have had some issues though, trans, injectors, fuel pump, glow plugs, alternator, sensors, looked at bullet proof diesel, they show an egr cooler update kit. A jasper rep was telling me its over 10 grand to replace the engine:rod: yikes, I am very mechanical, not dumb by all means, would it be possibly to locate another truck and transfer it over to a 7.3. or better off to just buy a complete truck, drive it and be happy?

ive seen some of the 6.0 guys swap engines, usually drop in a 5.9l cummins, which isnt too bad IMO

BUT.............however, if your looking for a 7.3l, thats kicka$$ or even more kicka$$er, take a look at the Black Momba and the Super Black Momba! They are sure to impress you! They are WELL worth the money! If my 7.3 ever takes a ****, im going with the black momba

Has anyone had any experience with the black mamba? I have been looking at their 6.0 and wondering if in the long run if it would be cheaper than putting studs and fixing all the minor things that need addressing in the 05 model year. I'm thinking that in my area I would get rapped on labor to upgrade it all and could get a new motor put in for a whole lot cheaper.

Anyway sorry to hi jack the thread. I think I would rather go with the 5.9 swap over the 7.3 jmo

I've been thinking that if my 6.0L ever needed to be replaced that I would drop in a 6.4L. I've driven 7.3L trucks and would never go that route.

If I had the extra cash for an engine swap... I'd deff go with a Super Black Mamba.
