1986 6.9 engine drop into a 1987 f250 zf5 4x4 transmission

Hi, I have a few questions hopefully someone can help me with. So I have a 1987 6.9 f-250 4x4 zf5 transmission with a bad 6.9 engine. I know a guy with a 1986 6.9 f-250 2wd c6 transmission and ATS Turbo. If I pull the 1986 engine and drop it in my 1987 will it fit right in with no modification? I know if I want to put a turbo on it I will have to do some modification to make it fit. But my main concern right now is the 1986 6.9 engine going into my 1987 f-250 5speed manual fine.

Thank you to everyone in advance.
Jake

Sweet! Does a company make the kit? Also can I still use the late still glow plug relay on the 1986 6.9 engine? I don't see why I wouldn't be able to but I know the 1986 had the old style relay. Just want to make sure. This is my first time getting this indepth with a vehicle.

I got mine from Rock Auto. Luk 07-255. I've used it on 6.9 and 7.3. Supposedly 6.9 is a very slightly different imbalance, but I noticed no vibrations or oddities.
