Question Using 7.3L in different car

Hi! I'd like to use Powerstroke/T444E engine in absolutly different car. Now it uses very old 5.3L carb gas engine and 3-speed manual transmission. It has NO ANY electronics onboard, except light control, brake switch and some other.
on eBay i find complete engine with automatic transmission and electronic control for it. But I'm not shure, if I can run it - maybe some parts will miss.

So What do i need to run engine and transmission ? Electronic accelerator pedal? Any sensors?

Sorry for my bad English - i'm from Russia.

besides the motor and tranny, you also need to replace the fuel lines and fuel tank and install fuel filters. you also need to make sure that the 444ci will fit where the 327ci used to be. nothing worse than getting that far and have it not fit

The 7.3 will be heavier than the gasser as well.
