Default buying used

I am currently in the market for a used miata, I have found a 90 1.6 turbo'd intercooled miata here localy for a good price. I was wondering if there was anything special I needed to look for on the turbo side. I know a bit about cars and I am a Helicopter mechanic for a living so I know a good job or bad.
Just wondering if there is anything specific I need to look for in a 115000 mile turbo car.

I will call the guy first thing in the morning and find out what I can.

Thanks for the help

If this does not work out I will be in the market for a good car and a DIY turbo kit

Default found another

I have located another miata in the Tampa area. It is listed on miata.net I am going to look at it on the 4th. The deal seems to be on the up and up.

I am not worried about the high mileage. I can do some engine work if needed. I just need to learn about the turbo system and how to tume it
