05 6.0l Powerstroke ZF6 swap tips/issues

I have in my possession an 08 6.4l parts truck with the ZF6, & I've been planning for a long time to swap it into my 05 6.0l auto. I was wondering if anyone on here has done such a swap, and if there's anything I should know before hand, such as problems with components between the 05 and 08 or mounting and clearance issues, and even better if someone could link me to a how to thread if there is one. Thanks in advance!

Re: 05 6.0l Powerstroke ZF6 swap tips/issues

I know it has been done before, and there is a thread on here somewhere, but I've got to ask you why you want to do this. Is your auto tranny dead and you're figuring you'll just swap in what you have? Do you just like the feel of a manual transmission? I only ask because the ZF6 isn't as strong as the 5R110. Don't get me wrong, it's a good tranny, and I love the granny low 1st gear, but I like the auto better.
