I'm buying my first diesel and have a couple ??s

I am going to be purchasing an '05 F250 PSD it has low mileage (25K) and I am getting a really great deal on it. The truck has been maintained by the dealer since new. I've been reading on this and a few other forums and I think one of the first things I am going to do is add a coolant filter. I've been reading about these EGR valves being a headache and there is a way to remove or delete them. Is that a good idea on this truck? Can you put one of those delete kits in without changing the computer/exhaust/intake etc?

Another question I can't quite find an answer is the motor in this truck made by International?

Thanks for your help!

Coolant filter is what I did first.

Here are some instructions to a EGR delete kit so you can see what installation requires:

If the State or area you live in has diesel smog check, you might not want to do this, it's your call. I don't have an EGR delete, nor am I recommending this kit, it's just info.

The engines are International made

I'm in DE and they do not check emissions at this point. I'm guessing that could change but I can cross that bridge when we get there.

Does anyone else have any opinions?
