Default what to look for when buying

Im diving into the miata world. About 3 years ago, I rode in my friend who I havent seen in years miata (pdexta) and it was a blast. Now, I have a steady paying job and I know what I want to do with the car I buy. It will be a street car and I will be getting the motor built (cp pistons, manley rods, acl bearings for bottom end. Still researching though) with an hx30 or hx35 turbo is the plan. My question is what should I look for when buying my first miata. I want it to be a 1.8 so no 90-93's. Is there a visible way to know if it has the torsen lsd?

I plan on this car being a fun car that I can take out and every now and then autox, get some good highway pulls that surprise some people and overall just learn about aerodynamics and other good things that come along with owning a miata
