update!: 05 f250 74k should i buy?

well i went and drove the truck again and this time i made them put it on a lift well surprise the front of the tranny was covered in oil (not tranny fluid) and both heads in the back were leaking oil...i thought they were know for leaking coolant so whatever. and on the top of the motor in the intake gally there is an oil like mud in there all in the middle of the engine what is this? i dont think im gonna buy and the turbo was all rusted and also had some oil leaking around the return line (no biggie) but the turbo also had alot of corrosion...(rust) dont know why but it is an ohio truck so its seen some salt. on the other hand if the heads need done i can maybe get studs in right of the bat with a new turbo maybe...what do you guys think cause i doubt im gonna buy it

p.s sweet running truck though really smooth and does run very well

if it was a 7.3 I could help you no problem... but the 6.0s are a bit different and I don't know as much about them....
