7.3 PowerStroke Conversion

Im interested in possibly trying to swap a 7.3 Powerstroke out of a 96 pickup into a 77.5 ford f250 HD. Ive searched on here and found no info as to whether this swap would be possible. Do any of you know if this would work, and of any company that would make the parts or a kit to make this work. What would be a better transmission to use, E4OD or a 5 or 6 speed? Any information or suggestions would be apreciated. Thanks

Re: 7.3 PowerStroke Conversion

Nobody makes a "kit" for that, but anything is possible with the right tools and enough $$$. You'd be best off geting a wrecked truck because you'll need not only the engine, but all the sensors, computer, radiator, wireing, accelerator pedel (it's a 'fly by wire' vehicle, all computerized, no cables or throtle linkages), all the accesories for the engine, new fuel lines, new fuel tank, heavier front suspension, and a bunch of "nick nacks" to get everything working right. It would be a real involved porject, but the payoff in the end wold be one awesome truck [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

5spd ZF would definitely be the easiest tranny to work with, and it's a very doable swap... like FD said, lots of little things that must be transferred over and you would have to weld up some motor mounts and tranny xmember, but if you have the time and both trucks side by side, you could do it... and you'd definitely get brownie points for it!
