engine change

I have an old 95 f350 powerstroke. It has about 300,000 miles. Its about time to replace the moter. The 95 powerstroke is 210 or 215 horse. Im looking at rebuilding this motor or putting a new motor in (more horses) but still stock. Can I put a 02 7.3 in and what will I have to change.

The things that make the newer motor more powerful have nothing to do with the long block. The newer motor has a better HPOP, injectors, turbo, and an intercooler. I'm not sure what all differences there are in the 2 years of motors you're talking about (as far as the long block goes) but they're subtle ones. The 02 will have PMR rods vs the 95 motor would have been forged.

Thanks thats exactly what I was hoping to hear. I found an 02 that is already rebuilt and still in the crate. ( the whole motor) turbo and all.

are you losing compression? hate to see you buy amotor if all you have is tired injectors or hpop.

if you do get the 02, put your 95 forged rods in it! you could probably save money by going over your motor. if you have good cylinders (no scoring, etc), you can upgrade your hpop, injectors, turbo an chip for what you might pay for a crate. and get more power.

anyway, curious whats wrong with the 300k motor anyway?

I'm sure Im losing compression. I think the motor has been dusted. I found dirt in the intake tube. Its just old. But I would like to rebuild it if I can get the hpop, injectors, turbo and chip for a good price. Can you head me in the right direction? I don't trust many shops or mechanics.

A typical 7.3 rebuild is 5k.

02 motor will work as stated above, but changes will have to make it work.

however, you will need to convert to a electric fuel pump since the sd engines do not have the hole on the top of the block for the lift pump.

i see.

hpop - about $600 give or take for new or used (dieselsite has an adrenaline 17* for $600) there have been recent posts on here about a guy somewhere that can rebuild these cheap and good quality... anyone?
injectors - $300 to $1500 depending on rebuild, reman, or new or stage 1's (diyinjectors.com if your up to it yourself)
turbo - $170 to $300 DIY rebuild. $700ish reman, $1000+ ugraded turbo
chip - $300 to 700 (TW, DP, PHP, Beans, ect)
glows - $80ish online (motorcraft - no autolites)
machine work $1200 estimated, depends on your machinist or your connections
headwork - ???
7.3 rebuild kit - about $900 (pistons, rings, gasket set, injector o-rings, oil cooler seals, etc, etc.)

this is all if you assemble yourself. other minor items are left out. sensors, filters, fluids and such. if you rebuild you get to keep your forged rods. if you get the other motor ad want to power up, swap your current rods.
