well that depends. what tranny is in the gasser?? C6 rightt??? it may work but i dunno. also you'll probably need motor mounts..and 7.3's(well i dunno bout the idi but the PSD is heavyyyyyyyy) so your suspension might not like to hold up the front well.

Big block, or small block gasser? Motor mounts are the same if its a big block. For ease of swap, a diesel trans should be used.
