Powerstroke into a 91 dually

What do you guys think? Is it possible? How much work is required or will the motor and trans bolt into the chassis. The truck already has a early non-powerstroke 7.3 and Auto. I want to put a Newer PSD into it with a 6 spd Manual Trans. Anybody have any input?

Thanks
CHRIS

If you can get a wrecked doaner truck, then I would go for it. But if you have to buy everything and collect all the parts. I think it would be a big chore.

Anytime someone talks about doing a big swap like this, I always suggest getting a doaner truck.



But if it was me I would do a 5.9L Cummins swap.

The reason why I say a Cummins especially 5.9L 12 valve, because it is a solid engine and a lot simpler to swap in.
