triton V8- 7.3 powerstroke conversion

What is involved in swapping a 2000 triton v8 with a 7.3 powerstroke?

Can you give me websites or prices? Im looking for a general ballpark

Im going to be finding a SD 7.3 psd with a 6 speed tranny and putting it in my buddies truck!

Any help is appreciated!

well its in a f250 right? (the 5.4) so you obviously need motor(with EVERYTHING), wiring, PCM, fuel tank is probably smaller, most likely a different fuel pump, exhaust all the way down. thats all i can think of off the top of my head.

i wouldnt do it, seams like a sh!t ton of work. its not like you taking an electrical gas motor and dropping in a mechanical diesel, you would have to replace your whole electronic system with a new one. seems like a real pain man. but hey, at least you want to but a powerstroke in and not a cum apart.

but thats my .02, good luck if you do it.

well he'd buy a wrecked truck just for the engine... then part out the truck itself!

you can almost find a wrecked truck for less than an actual good engine lol
