Help

I have a 2000 F350 EXTC-8' 7.3 5 speed shift-fly 156K purchased new, now body crushed. I just bought a 1999 F250 CCSB V10 from Texas, floor stick for 4x4, and it is bone stock untouched. I want to install the drive-train from my F350 and also improve MPG at the same time. My skill level is I can do anything to 60s-70s Mustangs, have a 2-post lift and tools. What is involved to do this and what improvements should do?

For mpg. Intake, exhaust, but if u want you can get chip but I don't think those realy help. Plus once you get a chip u need gauges. I would say just exhaust and intake and a tonneau cover.

I'm no expert on this swap, but it will probably require some type of tuning to get the computer and GEM to communicate properly...

What is a 5 speed fly shift

A knob on the dash that engages the transfer case in to 4 wheel. The 2000 F350 has shift knob and the 1999 F250 Has the floor lever. I bought the tools for fuel line and A/C line removal. What the question is what else is needed and should I remove the cab and box on both trucks so they are side by side? Or who could I hire to do this job?

I thought you were going to use your shifter to go fly fishing!!!

I think that I will use the auto transmission I don't want to cut and reweld trans tunnel. I have 3.73 gears is there a option for a 4 or more speed auto that won't break the bank? Again the goal is fuel economy. Any advice will be helpful other than control my right foot. Pictures will follow through out the rebirth.

It should be a fairly easy swap as you have a complete donor truck for the diesel. You will have to use EVERYTHING from the 7.3 as far as the wiring goes. If it was me I would pull the cabs...easier IMO, but I know guys that have done it without lifting the cab.

Upgrades

Cab & Box coming off Friday. I want to order upgrades for better fuel economy. What do you guys recommend? Which brands do you suggest I use while the box and cap are off (when it will be easy) or does someone have a complete recipe?

Thanks Again,
Jim
