I'd imagine it would be easier and cheaper to put in a 7.3 psd. The idi is not just a psd with no turbo. The idi is an entirely mechanical engine. The 7.3 superduty has a lot more to it than that. You'll probably need the entire idi drive train so donor truck not just an engine. Just find a 7.3 longblock. Can be had for cheap if you find a good deal

Why do you think it's blown? What happened? Windowed it? Pics?

Yeah. When your inside parts want to be outside parts and makes a window in the block so they can go outside.
