I own a 2000 F350 7.3 Crewcab and am looking at putting a new motor in. I have a line on a brand new motor but the sticker on the valve cover says 2001. Will this motor work and what changes will I have to make?:dunno:

Thanks for any advice.

i think there were a few internals that were changed from 2000-2001 but other thank that its practically the same engine so you should be able to pull the old one out and drop the new one right in place

Powerdered Metal Rods. Talking about he connecting Rods in the truck. They arent Forged, so It will only hold so much power before you Window the block with a rod.

i think the 01,02&03 rods are good for around 450 rwhp maybe 500 but i wouldnt go much higher than that.

The PMR's came out in August of 2000 i believe. The actually swichover date is suppose to have been october of 2000, but theres some motors with PMR's before 10/2000 and there's some with forged rods after 10/2000, so within the few months previous and the few months after, its hit and miss.

If you don't want to build HP with this motor - it's a PERFECT drop in. :nod:

The only thing you have to change is the temp sensor at the water pump... Everything else plugs right in...I just dropped in a new motor about 2 months ago. I put a 2000 motor in my 2001 350. Reason...Forged rods as opposed to powdered. Words of advice....pull the turbo, pedestal, radiator and support, intercooler....Makes life easy.
