Hello,

I want to put a 6.0 in a 1995 CCLB, any issues I should pay attention to?

Thanks

there is an engine conversion forum, you might find some useful info in there. deleted 6.0s are the best, deleted and replaced with a cummins

Wow, point taken. I like Fords, I like the 6.0. It has a bad rep.

Mostly I can make better power with a 6.0 than a 7.3, don't get me wrong huge fan of the 7.3.

With the proper MODs it can be very reliable, maintenance will be done by my son which is why I sent him to Wyotech. The 6.0 is plenty and not near as expensive as a Cummins.

Ford to Ford should be less problematic the Cummins to Ford.

My buddy has a Cummins and the last time I drove it my '86 6.9 had better power.

But your advice in noted and appreciated.

Thanks

The 5R with supporting mods, if I can get around 550 I would be pleased.

You could get that from your 7.3 with a lot less hassle. But half the fun is making a project isn't it? Something to call your own.

250/200's, s468, srp1 will make 550, idk how much you'll have tied up in your donor engine tranny but those are some 7.3 options

If you're going to all the trouble to put a 6.ho leaker in a 7.3 frame, why not just bite the bullet and do a Fummins swap? I'd take any model of Cummins over the 6.0. The bonus is there are already kits out there to do just that.

With every mod and upgrade out here, you can make the 6.0 reliable-ish. That's one turd of a motor and unreliable in any configuration. Just MHO.

Spoken like a 6.h0 leaker owner that wouldn't do it himself.

I've got a buddy that went to Wyotec... He spent more time drinking then anything. Dont think he has turned a wrench since, pays others to work on his truck, which is not running at the present...LOL

Only thing I would worry about is getting your head examined.

Throw a 24v in there if your wanting to do a diesel swap. I would not dick with a 6.0 nightmare for anything.

And FYI... Its not Ford to Ford or Cummins to Ford...

Its International to Ford or Cummins to Ford.

Sounds like a fun project to me. Hope you can find the info you need to do this. I think the 6.0 is a fairly good engine when set-up properly. They can make big power and can be made reliable. Good Luck on this and please keep us posted on your progress.

If your gonna go through the trouble why not just go 6.4? At least you'll get CR technology.
