7.3 In a chevy

I have 96 F-250 from a rollover and a 90 1ton chevy in need of an engine and trans. I doubt it is worth the effort but would appreciate any input from anyone who has tried anything like this. Thanks

Sounds interesting.. you would need almost everything engine and trans related from the Ford, and would have to custom make the engine and trans mounts.

If you do it... take lots of pictures... I for one wanna see how it works... even if I never try it.

tell us more about each truck..... are they both 4x4?

The most time consuming thing would be finding and fabricating a nice waterproof location for the Ford computer, and splicing all of the wiring harness into the Chevy harness.

Just roll the PSD chassis under the chevy body. If you go through with it take lots of pics.

Usually people do cummins swaps into those chevies. Check their sites out on what they have to do and work from there.

Hope you get it figured out!
