Default FM with gt3071r

Hi guys found a really clean 94 with a recently installed FM kit with the gt3071r. The car has the usual FM manifold and dp with full 3 inch exhaust. Supposedly has 1000cc injectors with a stock fuel pump?! Unfortunately the car has the hydra ecu which I will most likely replace with a ms if I buy the car. I know a turbo of that size is ment for a built motor but he is running it on a stock motor with fairly low boost. I have a spare bp4w that I am hoping to build with rods and low comp pistons. Anybody have input on this set up and what future mods it is going to need other than a fuel pump. Here's a pic.

It needs a radiator NOW. Coolant reroute will probably be wanted. Overall if price is right it may not be a bad buy.

This.

Protect the brakes with some heat shielding, too.

I have a new radiator from my other car along with a coolant reroute. Will look into a heat blanket or reflective tape for the brake fluid reservoir.
