Tips to buy need advice fast

I found a 1999 f350 with 200k miles it's white its a 6 spd and has 18" rockstars with 37" tires it's got powermax garret bb turbo, intake, 4" down pipe to 5" pipe, ts 6 position.
This is my first time buying a diesel and would like to know pointers to look for and reviews on the powermax turbo

I wouldnt touch a modified truck unless I'd been around the block on SDs a time or two. Too steep a learning curve, too many possible variables that can go wrong.

Its strictly my opinion, but if youre asking these questions, you should not buy a modified diesel. dip your toes into something stock and gently ease yourself into the water. Dont dive in without knowing how to swim.

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.
