Ive been around the idi engines all my life, 90k miles is nothing. I would recommend flushing the radiator and putting some water conditioner in to keep it from having water hydrolysis. They can be pretty powerful stock and if you put a MOOSE pump on it and a sidewinder turbo on then she will get up nicely. go for it man

Yeah its still a good motor, but do what I suggested right after you get it. You do not want the engine to have hydrolysis problems and end up putting a new motor in it. Worth the money to do so just for piece of mind
