Ford dropped the diesel engine contract with International engines, most likely because of the 6.0L and it's problems, hence why Ford has their own 6.7L diesel now. The idea was being thrown around...

The 03-04 turbo has a different pedestal mount and drain tube. If you swap those out, it should bolt right in. The turbos mount differently.
