No, pedistal is different and the turbo is COMPLETELY different. the 03+ turbo has a VGT solenoid that controls the veins in the turbo. the 7.3 doesnt have variable vane technology. no way to make it work without custom piping and wiring for the VGT solenoid.

there are some guys who have done this, BUT, it takes alot of work. no where near a easy task IMO.

If you are trying to install a new turbo in your truck, i have a writeup thats a sticky in the tech files. It has pics and should help alot!
