What engines will swap?

I have a 97 7.3 Powerstroke. What year model trucks would this be relatively easy to swap into. I guess my question is will it go in 99 up trucks.

Well, that depends on how much work and what you want out of it. It's a direct swap in 94-98 trucks that came with a 7.3 in them. Other years will take more and more work and parts, I put one in my 1976 club cab and love it! 99-03 7.3 trucks should not be that hard but the 6.0 trucks would take much more work and so on. If your looking to buy a gas truck to swap it in you would be better off to sell the 7.3 and buy the truck you want.

If you bought a '99 with a blown PSD, you could swap the block fairly easily. The turbos are different, along with the up pipes. The engine sensors are more complex and the later engines have split shot injectors instead of singles in the older trucks.
