There were many changes from the OBS to the superduty 7.3's, I think the heads were one of them. So no, I don't think you can.

i was hoping on using my heads and all upper parts, i had my heads check out and surfaced and they are ok, just wondering if i could use older short block because it seems harder to find a 99-03 block

If i remember correctly Marty the mod on here used an obs block for his engine build and his truck is a 2001 or 02 with PMR rods. I think he kept the heads of his pmr block and put them on the obs block. I am not 100% sure, but check the 7.3 tech files section and look for his posts. He has some very helpful write ups.

Yes you can.

I took a 97 long block and put it in my 2001. I had to install a freeze plug in the valley and put all my 2001 stuff on it.
