Default Gas to Diesel Excursion

Since the wife and I cant find a 7.3 Excursion I started thinking about doing a motor swap into a gas Excursion. Has anyone tried this? I know about the suspension differences but what about motor mounts and wiring? Should everything still work dash wise? Im building a 96 motor and can easily find an appropriate 4r100. Thanks for the help!!

The wiring and PCM will not work. You'll also need to change the instrument cluster and associated wiring.

I figured such on the PCM and IDM, I thought that was understood!! Should a diesel cluster from the same year as the gas excursion fit, or do they mount differently?

Not a awnser to your question exactly, but if your gonna go through that much trouble and $ you might be better off putting a 12V or something in. I think i read on psn it was a lot harder swap than you would think to go from gas to 7.3, but could be wrong. I feel your pain on trying to find a good ex though

You could always put a 12 Valve Cummins in it (or common rail) if the above sale doesn't pan out.
