Questions before I buy!!!

I am looking at an '06 PSD LB CC 4x4. 102k, Manual transmission. It has a salvage title but i dont know why. I am doing a carfax right after this post to see if i can get some info. I am buying from a very reputable used parts, towing, auto repair and U-pull it center here in Billings, MT. They bought it at a salvage auction and put a new EGR (stock, not a delete) and ran it through their diagnostics. It runs great, smooth, but the injectors do cycle after you turn it off. At least that is what i think it is doing? does that sound right, is that normal? they are asking $13,200 and willing to sell it for $12,000. I rarely haul anything and it will only be on the highway maybe 8 times a year. Should i be worried about the stock EGR? If I buy i will be looking for an edge Insite, EGT probe, and a tuner, what tuner should I get? does anyone have any for sale? Sorry, i know this is a lot but i need some feedback before I make a decision. thanks in advance.

2006 F-350 CC LWB 4x4 manual.
ARP'S, iTSX (tuned by Vivian), Silverline Turboback, Full Force Diesel 155cc injectors, EGR delete, Barder Stage 1.

If you have the VIN, see if your local Ford dealer will run an OASIS report for you. That plus the Carfax should give you at least a little history of the truck...
