Engine compatability

I have a 2003 F350 with a 6.0 that destroyed itself. I have access to a 2007 6.0 with the harness and ECU. What problems (electrical, transmission, fuel pump) might I encounter in trying to swap this engine into my rig?
Thanks,
Boyd

77K miles. Could this turn out to be an electrical wiring nightmare?

I would use the electronics of the receiving vehicle because a couple of things were different like the instrument cluster (05+ are digital)

The EGR does to your engine what smoking does to your lungs.

Remember you can always improve on a design until the EPA gets involved.

I believe the 07 engine harness can be retained.
You will need an 05+ lower rad hose to accommodate the outlet on your 07 front cover tho

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least

**i don't use capitals. deal with it**

We essentially just did this but it was a 2006 engine into a late 2004 truck.

Krazyk, did you have to rewire on the passenger side of the firewall?

Sorry for the delay. The truck was a late 2004. We used a 2006 engine, 2006 engine harness, 2005-2007 FICM and turbo. The 2004 harness was shot.

It shows some soft codes but no CEL. On first start the turbo vanes open and close a few times which may be a Ford flash. Actually very few issues and just had the AE and laptop on it yesterday checking the engine fan for issues. Seems like it hardly ever comes on full. With AE I was able to get it to 96+% so I assume the fan is fine and its a computer issue.

We are thinking that an SCT tuner should clear up most of the issues.
