93 gasser diesel conversion

currently has a 351 and ya know what, it runs on the wrong dang fuel. Lookin to toss in a 6.9 or a 7.3, leanin more towards the 6.9 just from the blocks being tougher. I dont have to worry about emissions or anything in my state so thats alright. also, its currently auto, and i would want a stick, but kinda need OD. What trans can i use. Any help is better than no help so please, any input is great.

can i just bolt everything right in if i just go with an idi? with the 6.9 fit fine? how about my gauge cluster, will it work? Or should i try a powerstroke swap? im already doing an old chevy with a cummins, so i dont want another one, i want something different than the old fummins.

If you want something different swap a DT360 in. Same displacement as a 5.9 cummins, but its wet sleeved. Which means no need to rebuild it it, just drop in new liners with pistons and away you go. They came with all sorts of injection pumps, but some had P-pumps which means you can get just as much power out of them as a cummins.

You will need either a IDI tranny, or a 460 manual tranny will work but you have to drill the top two bolt holes out as they arent a perfect match.

You will need different motor mounts I believe as well. As far as the cluster, I honestly dont know.
