7.3 IDI or Powerstroke into 1993 F250 4x4

Would this swap be pretty straight forward? I'm looking for an easy one to do for my first one but I have a family friend who's a diesel mechanic who can help if I get swamped.

My '93 was an IDI truck. '94 on up were powerstroke motors. You will need a ton of stuff to do this no matter which motor you choose. Wiring harness, motor mounts and... Better find a truck that was a diesel or get a donor truck.

I plan on getting a donor truck but I was wondering if I should get an IDI or use a Powerstroke.
