I actually did look on CL, but could only find a 3-71 and 6-71. The 6-71 had a transmission, but the 3-71 didn't (wah wah wahhhh).
I don't think the 6-71 would fit in the engine bay.

I will swap a V71 Detroit into something someday, however.

16V92T. Now we're talking! Of course the engine will weigh 2-3 times what the car does but there is something strangely wrong about the 4X bent eight that is the buzzing 16 with four turbos. I enjoyed one of those bad boys that powered a burly generator. Thirsty!

They never built 6.9 powerstrokes.
They did build 6.9 IDI's, but they're pretty mediocre HP wise.
