If its a 6spd 2nd gen its an HO.

Ask if the injector pump has been refurbished or replaced.

Ask if the lift pump has ever went out or changed.

When you turn the key on make sure you hear the lift pump turn on for a few seconds.

Make sure the clutch ain't slippin when you shift.

I went from a 1st to 2nd gen recently. Love the 2nd gen motor but the 1st gen looked like a show truck

Check for oil leaks.

Water leaks.

Air leaks

Check and make sure air filter is clean so turbo is not harmed.

Have i covered it all 0124vctd :lol4:

Only other thing would be if you are concerned about the 53 block or not. You may want to look for that but with that kind of miles I doubt it has one and if it does it is probably not going to crack. :thumbsup:
