'97 9000 Aero

Obviously... I have 9000 Aero. I'm looking for any advice/warnings about this car. I love it dearly, and I know I'll be needing a turbo soon. I'm wanting to restore the car. The fucktard that I purchased the car from didn't give the car the attention it needed. So, like I said, any information from experience would be greatly appreciated.

Well, you might have posted in the wrong section :/
First off, how many miles are on the car? How long have you owned it? Any modifications, or all stock?

Not a bad idea to pull the valve cover and drop the oil pan to check for sludge if you're afraid it hasn't been cared for. They're pretty robust engines, but you want to catch sludge issues as soon as you can, and use synthetic to help keep them at bay. And make sure you're running premium fuel. A lot of non-enthusiasts use cheapo gas, so get rid of it as soon as you can. Can't hurt to check/replace all your suspension bushings (control arm bushings, tie rod ends, engine/trans mounts, cv joints/boots, etc.) That should give you a starting point for preventative maintenance, but it's kind of a broad question, so post more details if you need more info.

And welcome aboard!
