A tad high on price but rust free pushers with factory AC and understorage are some of the best starting platforms for skoolie builds out there.
DT466 should handle mountains just fine. If you can see if the Allison 6th gear is unlocked. There is a slight chance that it could be, if it isn't I would prioritize getting that done (I am unsure what the process is for IC buses).
Can you elaborate on the EGR you mentioned? Not familiar.
Final price was almost $7k all in. Definitely on the high side but we had a diesel mechanic bless it. No major issues and like you said it had some of the more solid features we were after so that justified the cost.
