Sell the Powerstroke and buy a crate motor for the IDI would be the simplest.

Other than that everything in the engine compartment needs to be transfered over from the PS to the IDI. Also the dash should be moved over to make it simpler. It all depends on how much work and rewiring you want to do if you don't want to move the dash over.

96 F250 XLT 4x4, 4:10 gears, 5 speed, Tymar intake and HX hose, downpipe, pyro and boost guages, coolant filter, Luc clutch

welcome to PSN.
it is doable, but will require a lot of work.
you will need to change the complete wiring harness, both under hood and in cab.
plus the engine and instrument cluster.
the IDI trans will work on the powerstroke.
you may need a different flywheel though depending on the type trans.

owner of almost to many fords.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
