need info on engine change

Currently have 7.8L 240hp ford deisel in L8000 dump truck. What engine can I replace the 7.8 with. Looking for more power but also would like a easy change out without fab work.

The way the Ford diesels are installed, you WILL have fab work, and a significant amount of it, for any other engine.
