i could be wrong but the only real difference in the two is the wastegate, e series doesn't have one f series does, if you have a new turbo i would use that one and keep the other as a standby, turbos are expensive.

There are some other diffrences also, trucks have intercoolers, vans do not, so the plumbing would be diffrent, due to the lack of an intercooler, the injectors are smaller, limiting fuel, and power as well... the block is the same, so thoes parts would swap over...

I think they are the same as the OBS trucks... which also came without intercoolers. Others are gonna have to chime in tho, I don't have any personal experiance with thoes injectors and how they might react in this situation... I do know that my work van, loaded to about 12k lbs is a slug compaired to my dually F-350, even when it was stock, and had a load in the bed to make the weight compairable.

i guess i will pull the valve covers and see what injectors are in it. i see on some injector sites that they list the same injectors for e-vans and f trucks.

so here is what i have found so far. Injectors have the same part number stamped on them so i assume they are the same. Obviously the front brackets are different which was expected. The motor mounts oil cooler manifolds turbo and pedistal are different. I am going to try and use the van turbo and pedistal since they are new. The van motor is rated at 215 hp on the valve cover so i am assuming the motor will be close to the f series rating when it is in the truck and running with the f series pcm and idm. The oil pans look like they are the same. I am re-sealing all the problem areas and hopefully getting this back in the truck soon.

ok i have the motor in and running. looks like everything is ok except for one thing i can see so far. the motor cranked for a long time to start for the first 8-10 times starting. this happens even if you start it and re start within a minute. Today i let t run for about an hour and seems to start quicker. Could i still have air in high pressure oil system?
