put a 7.3 in a gaser

so a coworker has a 99f250 that the previous owner put in a 2002 7.3, with trans. he got it for free only 93k on OD.

lately it runs like crap...

-takes forever to start,

-has a minor fuel leak on front pas side of block under the pulleys etc...

-mite be eating/ leaking coolant (not 100% yet)

-no idea on last filter change fuel/oil/trans

so we got some cheap auto zone fuel filter and some additive to see if it helps at all and we got a codes...

-injector control driver

-throttle position sensor= low voltage/slow response

-some p0 code i'll get tomorrow.

-water in fuel

-low boost

its actually a clean truck and when its running good its nice he got it for free but doesnt wanna put bunch of money into it and offered it to me for my $3500 commuter car...

is it worth fixing, or trading for my car? im happy to help him fix it up if you guys think i should keep the car. I have a 04 6.0 superduty and my 4runner as well to drive.

Check below thermostat housing for drips of coolant, does it smoke when trying to start?
