I dont know about the block, heads, exc, but the 2000 wiring harness is should be different. The ecm should be different too. Super-duties had chipped keys, and that should screw with the ecm too.

Does someone on here know if you can swap the injectors, valve covers, and other miscellaneous things to make it the 2000 engine bolt up and run?

The downpipe will have to be changes also if you use the SD turbo, if I am not mistaken because of the different exhaust outlet.

I have been contemplating a swap like this, cause I have access to a 1999 SD motor.

Looking for a set of 3.55 gears if anyone has a decent deal or wants to swap.

7.3 SDs do not have "chipped keys" or the PATS system.

The swap shouldn't be too difficult. Just use the '00 engine as a long block and swap over the injectors from the 97. That will save PCM issues with split/single shot. Re-use the OBS engine mounts, accessory brackets, and water pump pulley.

The 97 truck fuel system will require modification, since the '00 will have an electric fuel pump. Installing the mechanical pump on the '00 engine will not work, since the cam eccentric to drive the pump was deleted.

As far as turbos go, you'd have to test-fit the 2000 up-pipes and turbo for firewall clearance. If it fits, you'd probably need a 2000 style downpipe.
