00 7.3L from a bus, mostly the same as a 00 F-250 7.3?

Sorry for the long topic there, but I wanted to be detailed to grab anyone's attention that is "in the know" about the differences.

I have the oppertunity to pick up an engine and tranny from a local scrap yard for cheap and it came from a E350 van/bus conversion locally. I gave it the quick glance and other than not having an intercooler and a wastegate it looks identical to my 00 F250 engine. (well minor differences like one big alt and such)

Anyhow the compressor side of the turbo has mounting ears for a wastegate control canister, and it looks from the quick glance to be the same. I need to know if it is the same on the turbo, and then also if the other parts from it are interchangeable. For waht I can get it for complete it sure would make the rebuild, balancing, and ceramic coating my my stock turbo much easier since the truck wouldn't be down for days.

Being new to the 7.3 I would love to have one on my bench to tear apart to see how things are put together, then selling off the salable stuff on ebay to those in need.

Thanks in advance
