I would assume but i might be 100% wrong, but wouldnt you also need the wiring harness and maybe the computer. Im curious is that price with the computer wiring harness too or just the motor?

It would be cheaper and easier to make your 6.0L bullet proof. Electrical system is completely different in the 6.4L.

Bullet Proof and 6.0 don't belong in the same sentence

Sure they do, just not when pushing high horsepower.

Re: What would it take to swap for a 6.4?

Well it's been in the shop more times then I have fingers and toes. Only has 58k on it, Issues have been typical for the 6.0, egr failures and such, but now the turbo went out. I posted pictures in another thread. Looks like something let loose in the motor, injector tip or valve and the turbo made a fine mess of itself. I wish I still had my cat on, it might have caught it. And before anyone asked it was the exhaust side not the intake side. The question is has anyone done the 6.4 swap?

After posting it sounds like I am being a smart [email protected]@, please don't take it that way, just really interested if someone has pulled this off. It's either this or a cummins swap. I don't think I would put another 6.0 in it.
