Get a Pittsburg Power Box with a turbo upgrade and iirc you'll be pushing 750hp from the 12.7L.

anything is possible, but is it worth the cost? if both engines have egr, then i think the truck's wiring harness will work on both. i think the motor mounts match up, so the 14l could just drop in. if using 12.7 ecm on 14 l, then reprogramming i would think be necessary. but if 12.7 is pre egr and 14 l is post, then wiring from ecm to truck has to be changed. it costs about 20 hrs labor to change engines if there are no complications. i think i would just put that money and just go to a company like pittsburgh power and have them do their thing on the 12.7.

I thought about doing this at one time. Why not yank all the egr junk off then you would have a non egr 14L monster motor.

It's my firm belief that a true Pre emissions 14 Liter non-EGR 60 series dd4 Detroit aka “John Deere" can be built and programmed to out last, out pull, and flat out run any other block on the highway. That is unless you run into a Pre emissions yellow belly with a lot of money and determination. I've got a custom built one with a Teflon coated kit just waiting for me to put her under the hood of my long nose wind catcher Classic. Just so you know, last year she Dynode 728 ponies to the ground and

2342 ft/lbs of twist. The only reason she's still in the barn is because my Pre emissions 12.7 don't know the word quit. Knock on wood.
