Sd motor in an OBS?

Hey guys I'm new here and looked for info and couldn't find any. If this has been gone over just point me in the right direction. Here's my problem; I bought a '02 sd 7.3 to put in my '96, just getting started and need any info, problems that have been had and solved, suggestions, ect. I plan on using most of the 02 parts, ie turbo, injectors ect. but am not sure about wirng the thing and downpipe issues. any help is REALLY appreciated

Your big snag is that you will not have the ability to mount your obs fuel pump and need to convert to an electric system.

Hope you plan on adding an intercooler . Or building a pipe to connect to the intake.

FYI, I got this as a 'core' motor, No. 8 needs sleeved and most of the running gear is there, but no chassis stuff. No PCM,Trans, ect. I'm not sure if the main engine harness is there.

No sleevs in a 7.3

You'll need to swap your injectors over to the SD motor. Splits no worky with a OBS

Re: Sd motor in an OBS?

So to give y'all a little more info; I'm running a TS 6 pos chip, gonna do the DP, tho I'm not sure whats involved there. IC from stock SD, gathering parts as I type. I'm getting mixed info on running the AD injectors, some say it'll run fine, others are saying I have to swap over my stock AAs, HELP!! Can I get the pcm reflashed to run ADs if needed? I saw Tom S's turbo upgrade, plan on doin that type of DP, if I can get a good welder. Thanks for all the help.
