Early 99 has a different compressor wheel in the turbo, it is known as the wicked wheel to us that have the late 99 to 03 7.3L.
Really man just look the truck over real good, ask for any documents from repairs made, take it for a test drive. When you test drive just don't go around the block with it. Start it up, let it warm up, take it for a good test drive, city driving, hwy driving, if it has 4wd find some dirt and test it out. You are looking at buying the truck. I am not saying to take the thing into the desert. But give it a good drive, make sure you are comfortable behind the wheel. Listen for any wierd noises, clunks, rattles, vibrations that may not seem right. If you are not fimilar with diesels, set up an appointment with a local trusted diesel mechanic. Probably will cost you 100 bucks if that for him to look the truck over run some tests on it and make sure everything is the way it is suppose to be.
