Ford 6.6 liter diesel swap into 78 ford f250

Does anyone know the specs to this engine as in length width height weight etc.? Because i have a 78 f250 with a 521 in it and for my first truck its a little impractical, my plan is that my brother and i are going to put a 5.9 cummins in it, but i thought i would weigh my options, i was wondering if a 6.6 would tuck under the hood like the 5.9 will, the 5.9 will fit just fine, i just think it would be cool to put a 6.6 in there if i could, that is if its a good engine, id like to put a little power through it someday, the fuel injection pumps are good, and injectors can be modified, custom rods can be made, but do they have a good crank??

im not sure much about the 6.6, other than untill you find a good place parts can be tough to get.

however a dt360 is just slightly larger than a 5.9 cummins. there is a youtube video of one in a superduty!
