99 stroker in an 89

I recently bought a 1999 powerstroke from a van for a very good price. My intention was to put it into my 1989 F-250 which had a IDI 7.3 that died recently and an manual 5 spd..

Anyone have any experience with this kind of conversion? I'm not really even sure where to start. The Tranny looks like it will bolt right up, but i need to find a clutch and flywheel that will work with both.

The bigger problem is gonna be all the danged electronics.

any advice?

thanks in advance,
Peter

most of the mounts points should be alright.

things to find a place to mount:
computer
an intercooler


are you going from a manual to manual??
or are going from an auto to auto??

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I'm keepin my 5 spd manual- it bolts up fine, just need the right flywheel+clutch. Mounts all see like they'll work with some minor mods.

I got the complete harness+several computer boxes, but there are 2 big plugs- one black one white that don't seem to plug into anything... chassis electrical from the van??

I don't currently have an intercooler- than van powerstroke didn't use one. I have been told that the van powerstroke used a larger turbo because of it
