6.0l PSD + 75 F250

I'm wantin to drop a 6.0 Powerstroke into my 75 as soon as funds allow, but I'm a little hazy on the wiring/electronics that are gonna be needed, in terms of gettin the truck to run.

Doesn't the PCM and dash communicate? Would I be ok without the 03-07 dash? I'm wanting to run all gauges (auto meters persay) for instruments instead of retaining the 75 cluster.

I'm just worried about small sensors and stuff that may not get along with my 75, but are needed for the PCM to get the signals it needs......

If I swap the PCM and stuff over, will I be fine?

Ummm why would you want a 6.slow all they are are problems. The money to HP ratio for a cummins to a 6.slow is pennies on the doller. Iv got a 550hp 12V cummins in my truck and I have maby $4000 into the swap motor and upgrades. Good luck getting just a motor for much less than that. Plus if you do a 12V there are like 4 wires.

mmm ok....

Cuz I don't want a Cummins, everyone and their grandma bails to go to the dark side. It wouldn't be at all special with a 12 valve, I want it to be adjustable, so the only motor it will never be is a 12 valve. CR maybe, it will actually be different with a 6.0l.

I Can't wait till people get over the "6.0l is nothing but problems" line of crap.

A CR would be sweet and the computer and everything is on the motor. Wireing is easy. My buddy put one in his SD. I dont know who but someone is making a stand alone controller for the 6.0 you will need that. If you dont you will have to rip the entire wireing harness out of a doner truck to make it work. No one has done it because its not worth the time but now they have a stand alone controller. Im not shure its out yet but it will be soon.

CR is lookin better and better

a 6.0 would just be alot more unique, expensive and a pain in the ***, but unique.

It would be a whole hell of alot easier with a CR tho.....

if you want easier drop in a 12v, heck, even a 24v would be easier than a CR.

Yes, actually someone has taken the entire harness out of a Super Duty with a 6.0 and put it into a Bronco, so I can't see where any other truck would be different.

Id do the CR you can make more power and its WAY easier to wire up. Everyone thinks its hard but my buddies showed me what they did and its almost as easy as a 12V. I was guna do a CR but didnt have the money. I will some day then I can have the adjustability of a CR
