8.3L cummins or DT466 for F750 repower?

I've got an 03 F750 and would like to do a repower.

It has a 24v cummins 5.9 right now.

Anyone have experience with the 8.3L and the DT466?

Is the 8.3 a wet sleeve? I know the 466 is.

I'm considering only mechanical engines.

I've got a 93 F-800 with 8.3 and Allison, our Fire Depts 94 L-8000 tanker had a 8.3 with 6 spd manual.
Both are stock 250 hp but have good torque.
I'll take a 8.3 over a DT466.
