opinions with a 99 7.3

im looking at buying a drivetrain from a superduty to swap into my f150
the guy told me it was a 99 with stage 2 injectors and a 6 position chip. past that his exact words are im a small block guy.
so how do i tell wether or not they are stage 2s the motor wont fire obiously its just the driveline. also if it does have stage 2s my guess will be the think will proly smoke like crazy and have high egts what shoulf i be looking into for a next mood. pump? turbo? i have a 02 motor that ran. anything i should strip off of that and put on this 99 motor? thanks in advance

early 99 has a smaller HPOP and injectors i believe. What are you doing to the suspension of the f150 to hold the weight of the 7.3? it weighs twice as much as whatever was in there!

dude it's gonna cost SO much money and take SO much work to stick that 7.3 in there. Your suspension will NEVER hold it.. not only is the motor too heavy, it produces too much torque for that rear suspension. You are gonna tear the rear susp. up and that things gonna axle wrap like a motherufker. I HIGHLY doubt a 7.3auto trans will bolt up in your trans tunnel (its huge and heavy). The transfer case will have to be swapped in. What year f150 is it? It's going to take a LOT of money and engineering brother; I hope you have it planned out.
