I may be biased, mine is an 02 with the 7.3. The "oily dust" on the tubes is normal on mine also.
Could this be the blown o rings on the turbos that I was warned about?

Also I know diesels are loud, and what not, this one seemed a little loud at lower RPM but quited down as I got on it.....

Of course I didnt give it a "full" warm up, so I am sure that had something to do with it, I only let it warm up for about 5 minutes, and it had not been driven by the owner in a while....
