Diesel Swap

I have a 99 f350 superduty with a 5.4L in it.
I just recently pulled a motor out of a 99 powerstroke my buddie is willin to sell me cheap.
any way i could swap the motors.
I have an 01 duramax, and lets just face it. Black smoke is just bad azz

what all am i gunna have to swap out? cuz i just dont have the money to buy a whole new truck without selling my motorcycle or my duramax.

Diesel Swap



You might be biting off more than you can chew. Aside from the engine itself, what about electrical components (alternator, etc.)?

Then you would need dual batteries - instead of one. The transmission would probably have to be a larger (and heavier) one. On top of that, the cooling system (heavier one required, I think). What about the rear axle/differential - both size and gear ratios? Any suspension differences? Fuel tank and lines?


I suppose it could be done.....but wouldn't it be better to just buy a used 7.3L or 6.0L Super Duty instead?

Just sayin'! (((( I WISH YOU LUCK, WHATEVER YOU DO. ))))
