Exclamation Help identifying sensors a 94 7.3L Powerstroke can run without

Can someone list the sensors on a 94 7.3L Powerstorke and which it can run without?

Also would I need someone to hook it up to a computer to disable them?

I currently have a 7.3 IDI in my boat and have the opportunity of swapping it for the Powerstroke.

Thanks all

If you want to run the powerstroke in your boat you will be much better off to get the marine ecm and wiring harness.

Honestly it needs all the sensors Kause the PCM reads those perameters to let it know what to do, it's a drive by wire system unlike the idi version where it's almost like a carb'd truck

Its still IDI but I have an early 7.3 powerstroke I want to put in it.

These are some videos & images of the boat. Four years in the making.

I've worked on several boats over the years with Idi and powerstroke engines and can tell you that the Idi's where less problematic in the marine environment. A Idi engine in good condition with turbo and marine injectors with a few little tweaks does a excellent job.

I agree with you Jack.

I do enjoy the simplicity of my IDI and have an authentic IDI marine turbo for it. However the turboed engine I purchased is seized. I have read that turboed IDI has anodized pistons, bigger wrist pins, different injectors and the list goes on.

Would I be able to slap the trubo on my running IDI? Are there master rebuild kits for the turboed IDI?

Do you know the part number for marine injectors?

Yes the factory 7.3 turbo engine did have the upgrades that you mentioned. I have run 15 lbs of boost on a naturally aspirated (from the factory) engine with no problems so yes on installing the turbo on your running engine. I don't remember the marine injector part numbers but any injection shop or international dealer should be able to help you. There are rebuild kits available but don't buy anything until you tear down the seized engine to find out if the cylinders can or need to be bored oversize.
