No, they are not the same. They won't bolt together.

No,they are different , But a 460 ZF5 can be made to fit a diesel. BTW the IDI(6.9&7.3) and 7.3 powerstroke are the same bellhousing pattern

The reason for useing zf5 is its two wheel drive tranny/truck,the idi & tranny donor i have is 4wheel drive.Trying to keep from doing input shaft and whatever other crazy things i would have to do to get the 4x4 tranny to work in 2wheel truck.
