02 about to buy advice please

so the original plan to purchase an an 02 with 66000 miles fell through. now the back up plan.

ok guys I am about to pull the trigger on an 02 with 102,000 miles. Truck is in great shape and was a trade in at a dealer. It has a boost and vacuum gauge, borla exhaust (crawled under the truck and the muffler says borla) and k&n filter. I also noticed the throttle body looked newer, so I think it might be an aftermarket one. I took it for a drive today and it shifted great, sounded good and no visible leaks at all or smoke from exhaust. All fluids looked fresh and when standing on it the boost would read 10-11lbs. Is this about right for the mods? I looked at the lower pulley but couldnt tell if it was aftermarket or not but looked different than the reast, They are asking $13,900 for it. It sits on 22's. Looks like the guy who traded it in had did these mods, so what do I look for and what should be concerning to me. does the pix of the throttle body look aftermarket?

Thats a nice looking truck. I looked it up on nada guides using my zip code and clean retail is $13,550. I would say if you can talk them down a little go for it.

If it came without a tuner, you better be finding out if it has a tune for that much boost!
Or your taking a big chance on blowing it up by running it hard.

You cant just run a off the shelf tune ether.
You need a custom tune.
A lot of guys use the SCT X3, witch will be able to hold a few custom tunes.
Check with Troyer performance,VMP,5 Stare tuning.
They are all reputable tuners and will fix you up with the tuner + custom tunes.
