New purchase 78 Crew F250 Ranger

Here she is! The new project truck. I am going attempt a 7.3 swap. It currently is a fuel injected 460.
Has anyone on here ever done a PS swap in a 78? I can get a complete ambulance chassis as a donor. The chassis has roughly 220,000 miles on it.
I can also get a 2008 6.0 ambulance chassis with about 25,000 miles on the motor. Ambulance 7.3's have a bigger turbo but are not intercooled.

Nice looking truck. I have a 79 F-250 regular cab sitting now. One day I hope to have it back on the road and would love to replace the 351 with a 7.3. Good luck with the swap. I have seen a few done, but I think it was a cummins though.
