If what you found is a 7.3 with no injectors visible, it's not an idi engine, it's a di which means computerized power stroke.. With work, a swap is possible, but it means work...

I really couldnt say, cause i have never done one... I have seen many comment that transplanting an older cummins [pre computer] is simpler.. After doing a cummins swap on my gmc, i might agree..

Re: 90 F450 trying to put the turbo version in it

I recently spoke with my old shop foreman and they did this exact swap with a powerstroke so it can be done. It will be a lot of work. I don't have specifics.

Early '99, 7.3/4R to Cummins 6.7/ZF6 CONVERSION, AIR LOCKERS, 4:11, 35", '05 HARLEY FRONT , TRAIL READY W/WARN.

6.7/ZF6 SWAP. IT'S ALIVE 11-13-12
