is the f350 same as f250

i was wondering if the 5.4 in a f350 is the same as a f250 i bought a 03 f250 with no motor. i always wanted a super duty so i sold my 2001 f150 and then bought the f250. i have a 5.4 out of a f350 and was wondering if their is a diffrence and if it will work without changing brain boxes and was also wondering how much of a lift would i need to fit 40s

My 98 f250 4x4 with the 5.4 Trition (vin L) just lost a valve in #3,I found a used 98 5.4 vin L with 72k on it for 1750.00..
I know their is a difference in 2wd and 4wd and Vin ID what I have found out the 5.4 and the F250 light duty is a stickler around 97-98 and then we have to deal with the 7 lug hustle.

I have a 97 250 and have thought and looked into this. It is kind of the only option I am left with and could really use your help, considering your experience with this swap in particular. Triton motors are just about all you can come by for a fair price now and itís all Iím left with. If you wouldnít mind contacting me, I have some questions and would really appreciate the help... thanks
