Default Socal noob looking to buy a boosted na

Hi, been lurking in this forum without an account for a while to read up on turbos and i do not have a miata yet.

I am interested in buying a miata from my boss, its just sitting in the car lot not being sold.

Only thing i know so far is that it is an NA1?, boosted, Hard top, Fender Flares.
Im not to sure on what year it is as i haven't asked. I'll provide more info as i talk to my boss.

Mainly my question is...

What to look for?

Thanks!!

What year is it? What sort of engine/fuel management does the car have? Does it have rust? Turbocharged or supercharged?

I'd consider it as long as it is not your primary or only car. I assume it had different wheels & tires at one point? The issue is that you may be buying somebody else's headache, but if your willing to do some fixing up and it isn't your primary car and if the price is right, I'd consider it. What is the price?

i looked closer at the flares and they aren't real flares... the fender wasnt cut behind them.

as far as the tune for the car i donno what to do about it. i was thinking about buying it and take off the turbo for now and build on it myself.
