Red face 7.3 swap need help

I'm out of my comfort zone on this one. My buddy has a 92 F350 with a 460 he bought a 95 Powerstroke engine to replace it. The truck is a manual and the engine is set up for a auto. Do we need to modify the engine harness or the ECM programing for the manual tranny? Will a 6 speed bolt up to the older engine? Please help I'm lost on this.

You will need a PCM for a manual, I'm not sure on the wiring harness but my guess is you will have to modify it. And yes a 6spd will bolt right up.

Re: 7.3 swap need help

you will need to pull the dash and change the wiring harness, pull the radiator support, Tranny, wiring harness to the rear of the truck, install extra battery box ,washer fluid and radiator overflow, cut off extra bracket on motor mount support, install fuel selector switch and change fuel lines around, pull fuel tanks, change out gauge cluster, exhaust. And thats just the stuff i can remember off the top of my head. If i ever had the chance to do it agian I think i'd rather develop a case of the swine flu.
