2000 to 2001 7.3 engine.....

Good morning all,
Quick question, will a 2001 7.3 change out with my 2000 7.3? I am sure hoping so since it's been bought. Truck is a 2000 and 2 cylinders are are under compression levels I was told and is misfiring.. Time for a replacement.

I'm thinking it should be an easy, direct plug and play.

Thanks. The long block I bought has 230,000 miles on it. Came out of a rollover and tested good as far as a contribution test, etc. I will have to use my turbo, HPOP, injectors, fuel bowl, etc. My HPOP and injectors are less than 2 years old as well as my valve cover gaskets and my glow plugs and relays. My engine is stock as well as this long block I bought. I paid 500 for it. I have only put 56,000 on this truck in 11 years. I am just hoping to end up with a truck that will fire on all 8 cylinders and run correctly when I need a truck.

Check the 01 block to see what connecting rods it has, if it has the Powdered metal rods, it would be a good time to swap a set of forged rods in.

Where do you check and what do you look for? Since I am just after a stock running engine, will the PMR rods not suffice? I'll be 50 this summer. Past the horse power game. lol

There is an inspection hole in the block close to where the block heater is, pull the plug and turn the engine by hand until you can see the fasteners on the connecting rods. If it is a stud with a nut it is the foged rods, if its a bolt head then it had the PM rods. The PMRs are fine as long as you don't plan on making more than 400 HP.

Thanks much!!!!! I be happy to just make 1 HP. The long block I bought is still on the trailer in the garage straddling a 33 inch truck tire with 4 straps securing its ride home. You have also got me curious about the original engine. What HP is a stock engine?

People can't let go of something that is a non-issue. Don't worry at all about the connecting rods it has.

I made myself a little bet before I opened this thread that by the third reply someone would have to chime in about them. I WON!

Am i the only one thinking that the original engine has a possible miss diagnose report? O.P..mind saying what 2 cylinders failed? My guess is 3&8. Any visible signs to you, that led you to belive something was wrong in the 1st place?

I'm also going to agree with the last couple of posts.

A stock engine or even mildly modified - PMR vs forged rods make zero difference. That's a non-issue unless you plan to build the motor to make serious power. Even then you're probably taking out the stock forged rods for something even stronger.

The other part is the diagnosis of your current engine. What issues were you having that led you to take it to a shop? For a shop to give a diagnosis of low compression AND misfiring makes me question the shop.

If possible could you post the compression numbers, I'm sure we're all curious? Missing on a couple cylinders could be so many things. Good buy on the engine though.
