6.0L to 6.7L Swap

Has anyone thought about this? Anyone heard rumors of Ford offering a 6.7L "crate" motor?

I have heard that some dealers don't even have oil filters for the 6.7 yet..... I highly doubt your going to see a crate engine any time soon.....

Why would you want too??? Most who swap out a 6.0 go to a Cummins as there are several companies that build conversion kits. The 6.0 was not really a bad engine but does have problems that can be fixed with readily available aftermarket parts.

Wayyy to many parts to swap, and way too expensive. A Ford reman 6.0 alone is almost 10K. Putting a 5.9 in would be the way to do if you were looking to some sort of conversion.


I can sell you a Ford Racing supercharged 5.4 DOHC . OK its a gasser, but it makes over 1000hp at the wheels

I would do a cummins swap as well not only because of preferance, but to avoid dealing with emissions equipment as well. I think you are supposed to keep all emissions equipment intact when swapping in newer motors, but not sure.

It might be cheaper and way easier to just purchase a new truck with the 6.7 then swapping over.

Gen.Comment...you can swap out for any engine, even one that didn't come with oem smog equipt. Hang up is VIN# & DMW cause s.check will still be required if registered in area/county that require's um.

If I could drag my house a few miles down road, next county has no gas/diesel smog check's. Many cars/trucks commute into our area from "no smog check county" I guess they don't pollute the air?

Well....I kind of view the cummins swap akin to putting a 454 in '69 Stang that blew its 428 Super Cobra Jet motor...it may not be to this level of heresy but it just doesn't feel right to me. I know, I know...big-rigs don't align with powerplants (Cat, Detroit, Cummins), and we all like to think we drive "big-rigs", but really, come on guys...also I am still a badge loyal kind of guy. Also, the cummins swaps use the older tech diesels...I like the 6.7L "green" factor, quiet factor, and pure Ford factor. Anyway, I am just daydreaming, my 6.0L only has 60K on it, and as long as I can keep my cool with its quarks (damn ICP/IPR), the 6.0L will be around for a while...but...if the a crate motor does come out...it would start to make me drool!

Although I would normally agree on the whole mixing of Ford, Chevy, Dodge thing, in this case I agree with the others. It's just not the same.

Also IMO it would be a huge waste of money as that 6.7 is probably three times what you could pick up a common rail Cummins for.

I have looked into doing an engine swap for our truck but every time I come back to it, it just doesn't make financial sense to dump 8 grand into a 13 year old truck with near 200k miles on it. Better off to just buy a new or newer truck.

2006 F350 Lariat, 6.0 PSD CC LB 4X4. 100k miles.
Wix coolant filter, Dynomax Ultraflow exhaust, cat mod, Edge Insight CS/with EGT. Sinister EGR delete, EGR cooler delete, up pipe. Looney Tune via SCT X4. S&B Intake.
Mag-Hytec transmission pan, 08 diff cover.
2" leveling kit. RS9000 Shocks. B&W Turnover Ball/ Companion Hitch. Airlift 5000 airbags.

2012 Heartland 5th wheel. 36' @ 12k pounds.
