It's a 99 f250 v10 sd single cab 2 wheel drive can I just drop in or ? My engine code is vin s. So as long as that one is a vin s 8 the digit should this work for a direct swap ?

Should be a direct swap. Can't see anything being different maybe the oil pan because of the 4x4. And I think the oil cooler is relocated on the 4x4 but don't hold me to that lol

Chances are its not a direct drop in swap----issues with the ECM and the chassis wiring harness along with the engine sensor wiring harness might occur. This is primarily due the wiring harnesses themselves aren't universal and can greatly affect or interfere with proper running of the "new" motor.

If all you are doing is swapping out engines , there should be no problem .

He says the trucks are the same year. The sensors should be the same. We did a V10 swap on our 99 f250 and it was a direct swap
