new project

looking at getting a late 99, reg, 2x4, 250,000 miles, for like $200. only problem is it doesn't come with a a motor and has an exploded trans been looking for a motor and a trans found a few 7.3l combos for like $4,000 but what i have noticed is there is a lot of 6.0l and 5r110s for sale witch i have been pondering. but why i am posting in the 7.3l forum is I'm wondering if 1997 and older powerstroke's will work in a new superduty? or what will have to be transferred over in order to put a presuperduty 7.3l in to a superduty?

you can put a 97 in, theres a few differences aka mechanical fuel pump and smaller hpop. smaller turbo, different intake.. you can upgrade some things though.. and the e4od isnt as strong as a 4r100 if you put one in, so honestly yeah but you'd have to change some things.. if it was me i'd upgrade to electrical fuel system..17* hpop a zf6 or an 4r100 if you want an auto but they arent the best. and of course theres all the electrical does the truck you're buying still have the harness or nothing? its alottttt
Best just to get a 7.3 out of a SD though..

could always throw a cummins in it haha.
theres so many 6.0's out there cuz people throw em out to put in a cummins, you can make them pretty bullet proof but it takes some $ and they arent near as easy to work on as a 7.3 but the torqshift is a great trans...

don't want a cummins swap, i think i will stick with a superduty 7.3l just for the easy install and stick with the auto cause driving a stick in Chicago traffic sucks. and ya the harness is still in tact, so that makes the 7.3l more appealing.

well there you go! just get a SD 7.3 is the exhaust still on the truck? make sure the uppipes arent leaking when you get the new motor, change the gaskets to be safe, throw a WW on the turbo, and stick er in.

Find someone who can get you a wrecked truck from an auction (i.e. copart.com), and then use the wrecked/totalled truck as the donor vehicle

It'll be much cheaper, as totalled vehicles can be had CHEAP on copart! I have friends who buy from them all the time and save thousands repairing/buiding other vehicles.
