You would need all electronics to get a Powerstroke to work.IDM PCM.Fuel tank and lines would probably be fine just clean the Gas out 1st.You would also need a trans adaptor or a 4R100 trans to make it work.

I would PM him and ask.I know it would be a project that I would not want to tackle unless I had a full week to dig at it.

I think this would be easiest if you get a 94-97 motor. You would need the engine and trans as the bolt pattern is different between gas and diesel w/ the 7.3's ont the trans. Buy a vehicle side engine harness from a wrecked truck or stealership and you would be off to a good start. I would start looking at junk yards for wrecked E350's w/ the 7.3 and take as much as you can. Could be a fun project! Let me know if I can help. I have a semi torn down 97 at the house. I won't need the front cover and other misc parts.
