I know this is a Powerstroke site, but you could always drop a Cummins in it. Although it might be a more expensive swap.

I'm pretty sure they make adapter plates for your transmission.

THey do


but the block from 94-03 is relatively the same and will work.

My opinion? Pull the motor, take it to a machine shop, have them bore the cylinders out, put new pistons in and call it a day.
