    1953 coe.JPG I had a shop start on a project for me several years ago. Installing a 1953 cab-over body on a 2006 F550 6.0 4x4 chassis. Long story short, sent them to much money as they said they needed it, nothing got done on truck. My fault for not keeping tabs on it more closely, but i trusted the guy; he was a good talker.
    Anyway I got the project back in boxes and pieces- a big mess. I would like to finish the project. Does anybody know of a stand alone controller that would work for this 6.0 engine. It would give me a big boost to finish this project. Thanks

    Don't think I've seen one available.

    It's to bad someone doesn't make one. They made a lot of 6.0's. Very good engines once a few issues corrected.

    Remove the controller from a donor truck and the wiring harness and make your own. You will need wiring manuals that show you every wire involved and a good shop manual.

    Is the VT365 IH Trim 6.0 the same as the T444E IH Trim 7.3? I know the T444E has the PCM mounted to the valve cover as a "stand alone" controller, unlike the 7.3PSD in a Ford that does more than just control the engine......

    @Dieselcrawler are the VT365 buses set up like this?

    Thanks for the replies back guys. I'm new to this so it will be a big learning curve

    Yes a medium duty 365 will have its own ecm and is sort of “stand alone”. Only downside is now you will have a j1939 datalink instead of obd2. Also next to no aftermarket support for things like tuners and such
