hey guys i bought a rollover 6.4 that im currently putting into a 03 f250 that had a 5.4, my question is ive got the engine in the bay but the 6.4 mounts are too tall the engine sits way higher that the hood and there is about four inches of clearance between the oil pan and the cross member, does any body know of mounts i can use?

6.0 mounts are totally different than 6.4.
When I mocked up my 6.4 in my 05 I puled the 6.0 the mounts bolted right to the 6.4 block and dropped it right into the 05 chassis fits just like 6 leaker. 03 is available with 6.0 simplest solution is use 03 6.0 motor mounts. just make sure to use correct 6.0 mounts for your chassis they are different 03-04 and 05+ bottom end is basically the same between 6.0 and 6.4 they use the same rear engine cover and lower oil pan

thanks thats awesome news! one other question, what did you do with the factory computer mount? on the 6.4 it mounts right in the firewall i was wondering if i should extend the wires and run it in the cab or not? and what about the heater box did you just keep it and plumb into it?

Mine is a 2.6 sled truck I ditched the ac removed the evap core. heater hoses just ran bulk hose. kept the heat the truck has zf6 with sb triple disc , so it does not use tcm I swapped the 08 abs controller on to the 05 abs pump the 05+ truck have pcm hole in cowl panel so we just opened the hole up big enough for the 08 pcm. used stock 08 engine harness we made new harness from the old 6.0 pcm location to the 08 pcm for power ground and communication wires and a whole cluster f##k of wires for the anti theft and cluster ect... basically over laid the dash harness. Used the 6.0 battery cables and trays running electric fan 7.3 radiator & shroud we welded up the water outlets and IIRC used 6.0 radiator hoses. I have simi trailer full of powerstroke parts just dug trough the crap till found stuff that fit. mine is a single turbo manual cant imagine getting all the 6.4 stuff to work
