Re: Want to swap 6.0 to V10

Heck, if you're gonna do that do a 7.3 swap.. Then it's all still Ford.

Re: Want to swap 6.0 to V10

^^^ the 7.3 isnt a ford motor. i love my 7.3, but if it ever dies an ugly death, a 12 valve will be taking its place. those things run on everything, lol. hell ive seen guys pour all kinds of things i would never think of putting in a fuel tank and still run.

im with the others though, selling current 6.0 and just replacing it would be a lot less hassle, especially if your in cali. the smog refs there know their shit when it comes to motors and what vehicles they should come in, even motors from other countries. hard to pull a fast one on them when trying to pass all the hoops you gotta jump through there.

Re: Want to swap 6.0 to V10

OK purchase V10 van and then swap bodys and sell 6.0 with other body? How hard would that be?

I see Ujoint pull the body off and its looks straight forward? Computer and Harness would swap but in my simple mind it looks doable.

Any Ford dealer should be pretty well versed at pulling the body off a 6.0


Mechanically it shouldn't be too bad, and if its the same year body wiring should even be the same. Still could cause registration/VIN issues though, especially for the V10-VIN'd body with a diesel in it. Any state that does testing will probably run the gas-engine test, and I'm pretty sure there's no way a 6.0 could pass that. Might work OK if the V10 chassis was wrecked and you don't try to re-sell it. Any newer gas motor should pass the diesel test no problem, other than California's visual inspection.

Re: Want to swap 6.0 to V10

Thanks for the input folks. Kind of what I was expecting. Looks like I'm going to have to rub out a few scratches and put the beast up for sale.
