If everything I posted checks out, it may very well be worth it. That said, the 05's have the weak EGR cooler, and also the weak dummy plugs and standpipes. The turbo may very well be frozen (the variable inlet guide vanes on the exhaust wheel).
Also, anytime you buy a 6.0L, you need to look for signs of leaking head gaskets or a leaking EGR cooler. This is commonly evident (although not always) by signs of coolant spraying from the degas bottle cap. It will show up as "water spots" where the coolant minerals are left .... after the water and glycol evaporate.
Also, I would have a shop check out the fuel pressure - they can simulate WOT conditions for the fuel pump.
