depends on its life........
has it been treated well or thrashed
is it stock or is it played with

more so you will need to look into the body and all the other areas, brakes drivetrain diff
no point having a turbo vl if the rest wont hold up or match whats done to it

yeah never boosted never

got adjustable boost intercooler n ****
its thrashed more then likly
if its never been boosted then it would be standerd 6-7psi which it would hold fine with the over boost valve
you dont run a adjustable boost controler for no reason

just look over the car for rust
under the rear windscreen and around the front window
the rear boot rubber lift that off and see how that looks

check oil cap for milkyness which is a sign of cracked head or gasket
