Not a TC but 2.3 Turbo

Hey guys I'm looking at a Merkur XR4Ti 5-speed it's an 88 with 76K miles (original owner is about 50 yrs old)on it. The timing belt was just changed and the wastegate was replaced.
Do you guys have any suggestions on what to look for "ïssues" wise?
PS other than the hoses and timing belt it's totally stock.
Thanks in advance.

No matter how good she looks. No matter how cool she is about your "stuff". No matter how great she is in bed, someone somewhere is sick of her crap.

1995 850R with 18T, 3" downpipe, R.I.P. kit, ported intake,42lb injectors, N/A cams, 960 throttlebody, Rica tune(15psi in first and second 17psi in third and fourth). Bilsteins all around, V70R caliper and rotor upgrade, total lack of traction. IPD STB, Ultra Racing lower braces and RSTB.
