6.9idi to 7.3 ps

1865 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Mike Lewis
I was wondering how hard would it be to put a 7.3 ps into a 6.9 idi's place? What kind of modifications would I have to do to the truck to get the motor in? Will the power stroke bolt up to the 4spd?

Thanks for the replies

Do a little research with an International dealer on a T-444E with their engine only electronic engine control box. That way you won't have the worries of all the integrated engine/transmission interactions of the PCM used by Ford. An older T-444E equipped IH truck or school bus application with manual transmission would be a good place to start.

I believe there are several different bell housings available. You'll need the one to mate to your transmission (may be a Ford unique item), otherwise, all the hardware should mate up. As with any swap, be prepared for surprises.
