Thumbs down Engine Block Question - Please Help

I currently have a 95 DI Turbo Powerstroke Diesel with about 130,000 miles. Everything on the top half of the engine is good, but the cylinder wall in #7 is really bad. I didn't want to sleeve it. So I was able to get my hands on a block from a 98 or new vehicle. The casting numbers are 1825849C2, and there is a number 1114C that is stamped sideways on the block. What I want to do is used this block, and switch all my parts from my 95 engine over. I am going to rebuild the block first, but I really want to know is whether or not this block will interchange with the heads and other engine parts from my 95. Does anyone out there have any experience with this. I don't want to spend all this money and start putting it back together and find out that it won't work.

I know some of you are wondering what happened to number 7 on the old block, well it appears that the previous owner must have blown the turbo and sucked it in to that cylinder. It tore up the cylinder wall, and the rings. They fixed the turbo and got rid of the truck before it layed down. So I got the good deed of pulling the engine for rebuild or replacement.

Yes, you can swap stuff over from your 95 block to a block out of a 99-03 7.3.

Only problems you will run into are different front covers and there a freeze plug where the mech fuel pump would be on the later model blocks. Just besure to get rid of the PMRs if your going with an 02-03 block.
