In my opinion the price is a little high for a vehicle that is going to need work.
As for the differences, a IDI is a good engine. It is mechanical and power can be brought up to close to the first generation of stock Powerstroke.
The first generation Powerstroke is computer controlled. It needs it's PCM and IDM to run and to fire the injectors. With a chip it will out horsepower the IDI quite easily.
It all depends on what you are planning on doing with it. If a gas F150 is all you need I would look at it real hard before I made up my mind to buy it.
