5.8 EFI V-8: 210hp, 317lb-ft

The only place you might gain a little is in fuel economy, but that is erased by the higher cost of diesel fuel.
I guess I didn't know the exact numbers that a 6.9 put out for power. But I bet a good exhaust and set of headers for a 5.8 put you're above the torque specs for a stock 6.9

I would say if the 351 isn't doing it for you then just search for another truck with a diesel already in it. Or the 460 if you don't care about fuel economy. The right gears make a big difference too.
