First the turbo off the 7.3 will be useless on your 5.9. If you are going for power under 500hp stick with the stock cummins turbo (hx-35)
You will need engine mounts from autoworld of montana, alternator mounts,a/c mounts, tach mounts, new transmission cross member, shorter driveshaft, powersteering pump connectors to connect the older ford to the newer dodge steering pump & brake system. intercooler mounts need to be custom fabed up to bolt infront of the stock radiator core support which will need to be modified as well.
Don't expect to much fly by the seat of your pants difference on a stock cummins motor. Chances are if you are using a older VE pump style engine it will be a slug without injectors,pump mods etc.. etc.. The 2nd gen 12V with the P-pump are considerably faster but need supporting mods to your transmission & turbo charger to handle the extra fuel or power.
