06 Mystery motor in my 03

I bought an F350 off ebay nearly two ago that had a blown oil cooler. I got the truck cheap as the owner just wanted away from what she said was endless problems. The truck had just over 100k on it and otherwise was in great shape. I replaced the oil cooler with the new round cooler and added a coolant filter as well as replaced the injectors. The truck has ran flawless till last weekend when I had a no start. It happened near my buddies shop so he I had him look at it for me. It turned out to be a bad ground and it was a quick fix. But during his diagnosis he found out the motor is a 06 engine. It was apparently replaced at some point. I bought the truck off the original owner but I have since lost her contact info. I have plans on adding a tuner as well as few other mods but now I'm curious as if this will cause me any problems. I think the long blocks are virtually the same but I'm not sure. Any input into this would be greatly appreciated

i can't see it causing any issue maybe see if you can get an Oasis report run
to see when the motor was put in
I'm surprised the 06 didn't come to light when u did the cooler and injectors

You mean you replaced the EGR cooler.

If he has the 03 intake manifold, the 03 turbo pedestal, and the 03 up-pipe to feed the egr cooler... he could use the 03 egr cooler

My bad.. yes the egr cooler and yes the intake and turbo are all 03. It would appear that the long block was the only thing changed. I haven't picked the truck up yet and only had a brief chat with my buddy on the phone. I'll get more info this weekend. He was suggesting adding an external oil cooler and I had it on my mind lol

From what I've read it would appear the 03 injectors I installed shouldn't be an issue

Only getting stranger.... Had an etest done this week which it failed at one testing facility I then drove to another facility that handles big rigs and it blew clean. I'm dealing with the gov agent now and trying to get my $135 back for the first test. What was interesting though was when they plugged into my truck it showed the chassis as an 03 and the engine as an 06 international. Is it just me or does that seem odd? 06 Mystery motor in my 03-20140405_151506-1-.jpg

I have no idea.... I bought this truck of ebay from a woman in Georgia that I lost her info. It had a bad egr cooler and oil cooler. I got the truck cheap and had it shipped up here where I had a local shop replace both. I added a coolant filter and service the truck every 5k and its completely stock (no tuner) And for the past nearly 3 years the truck has run perfect. I only just noticed the engine replacement after we had a bad ground on the IPR. Then again on the e-test. I'm sure it showed up on the other e-tests but I never looked at them closely, I just took them to the ministry and got my new plate sticker. When we did a leak down test on the motor it was as tight as a drum. The truck has 130k on it and I have no idea how many miles are on the new engine. I was considering using an sct tuner to gain a little mpg but know I'm wondering if this will cause any problems.
