swapping parts off a t444e onto my powerstroke

Hey i have a 2003 7.3 f-250 ive heard that the connecting rods are not as strong as the 99-00 7.3's and in worried about mine but i know where there is a t444e international built in may of 2000 that i could get parts off of could someone tell me if it would be worth my time to take them out and put them in my truck. also i could get the injectors out of it is there any difference between them and mine, also are there any other parts that anyone would recomend to take off the engine for myself

all help is appreciated im new to this so thank you guys

if it does in fact have forged rods. check the engine serial number. diesel power mag has a "rebuilding it right" article f the 7.3 which gives serial numbers for the blocks with forged rods. i would think injectors would be the same though.

here is the article. Complete 7.3L Power Stroke Long-Block Build - Diesel Power Magazine

iirc, ive seen threads pass by stating 400 hp for PMR, and 550 for forged? it might actually be higher for forged, just trying to remember...

i would think so, guess it depends how hard you push it. your talking if you move to the 02 block with PMR's right?

Yes it is, but can you do it your self? Also the 444 block has a different trans setup too so you can't just swap blocks
