5.4L gas to a 7.3L DI turbo

7.3L DI turbo complete from or for an E350 (turbo is different and air intake is smaller than F series

E4OD transmission (if not already in the van)

Flywheel?, gas pedal assembly, radiator, core support, upper/lower/heater hoses, belt, vacuum pump, overflow tank, radiator cap, alternator, batteries group 50 and 65, batteries cables, pcm, idm, wiring harness, exhaust system, driveshaft?, air filter assembly and tubing, engine mounts, various nuts and bolts.

I do not know where the ac compressor and power steering pump is on a 5.4L gas in an E350 and if hoses are the same. Battery bracket for second battery. Dash components, wait to start light?

Engine hoist for the 7.3L. A special bracket made by Rotunda (well when I bought one) and extra person (225lbs or so) to stand on the engine hoist cause it will nose dive with the powerstoke attached. I know.

1995 Ford E350
7.3L DI Turbo
E4OD
4.10 posi
single rear wheels
ambulance prep-package
Wheeled Coach Box

and yes, all the lights work....

repair and sell... buy one already with the diesel... less work, less money. The swap will nickle and dime you to death, and it's still gonna be a transplant with meny possible issues.

Buying one that came factory will make everything fit the way it's suppost to.
