2004 powerstroke what size is it?

Hello all, Im a noob to the diesel thing. Im thinking of buying a very clean 2004 f350 crewcab 4x4 has 250,000 mostly hwy miles on it. Owner put in a new turbo, injectors, FICM, new batteries and new tires. He wants 9,500.00 Two questions, what motor is likely in this thing 7.3 or 6.0? Is this a good price for this high milage diesel? Thanks.

Is this thing, as described above, worth looking at for the price of 9,500.00?

Being new to the diesel scene would you be able to tell if the turbo or FICM was new?
Does he have the documentation to support all this repair work and why was it done? I would want real good answers to those questions. I would also want an oaisis report on it to see if there have been any real serious problems with it in the past.
Find a good diesel mechanic who knows what to look for in a 6.0 and have him look it over first.
It's a lot of money for the miles IMO, but if it is clean and been taken care of it is worth it.
One more thing to remember though....the motor is not the only thing with 250,000 on it either.

You make good points with your questions. Your best point is the fact that the motor is not the only thing with 250,000 miles on it. I do not want to be nickeled and dimed to death replacing parts on this thing so Ill continue my search for the right truck (less miles). Thank you gentlemen for your input.
