early 7.3 99 to newer 7.3 swap question

It looks like the the 7.3 in my early 99 f-250 blew up so i am wondering how hard it is to drop in a late 1999 to 2003 one instead. With so many more options for performance parts and since i have to get i new motor anyway it seems like a good idea. Any advice?

They're the same block and everything, the only difference is bolt on stuff like turbo and up pipes, hpop is smaller, it has smaller injectors. It will bolt up fine though

Just out of curiosity, how did you "blow it up"? This kind of information comes in handy!

yes should be direct bolt in, like said only differences are bigger turbo, bigger injectors, better hpop, now if you tow much need to look at getting a ported turbo housing for it as it tends to get the train sound going, ported turbo housing fixes that right up, but lots more power also with it.
