Shed some knowledge.... 2007 PB105

Hey everyone, I am quite new to the forums here actually my first thread. Now I have been lurking for a while trying to gain as much information as I can in order to navigate this journey. Anyway I have a question for everyone here or really any info you could help me with. Helpful links or personal experience etc....

Now I wrote this thread because I came across what I believe is a great platform for us. Though I have not had enough time to research as thoroughly as I would like, I have come to seek advice. Now we are in the beginning stages of our journey, recently discovered an international pb105 on auction 1 mile from me. The specs will be listed below. Looking for any information positive or not regarding this platform. We plan on building a fully equipped skoolie to travel and live in full time for at least 18 months.

2007 International PB105
170,494 miles
Starts with a boost. Diesel engine.
6.7 L DT466 E engine.
Air brakes.
Removed from service 7/19.
Tire condition: good.
Dents, scratches, dings.

This is the information provided I have not been able to view it at this point. Auction ends in 5 days, any information or direction would be greatly appreciated!

If the bus is a 2007, I think that means it's a MaxxForce DT and not a DT466e (not entirely sure about that). Either way, the engine is post-2003 which means it incorporates the first round of emissions controls devices which are problematic and expensive to fix (the conventional wisdom here is that you want an engine from 2003 or earlier). The MaxxForce is regarded as especially undesirable.

Well, looks like they got a bunch of the engine information wrong. International never made a motor with 6.7 liters of displacement.

2007 did have DT466E's that were not Maxxforces (but they did have an EGR added to them). I'm not really an IC guy so I am not familiar with the exact time when IC switched from the EGR DT466E's to the Maxxforce.

I did not realize that discrepancy thank you, when in the phone with international he did confirm it was a DT466 originally which from my understanding would not be the Maxforce series. I do believe the 2008+ models use the Maxforce models.
