Lookin at 87 944

I was looking at getting this

http://www.cars.com/search/used/cc/standard/results/single/ld/detail.jhtml?paId=130941724&aff=national&src=&cid=null

Couple questions,

What are some commen problems I should look for before buying?
Is the engine the same as the 944 turbo? Just minus the turbo part?

Does anyone know the specs on this car? Ive been told 150,160, and 188bhp, Which is correct?

As far as turbos go, can a 944 Turbo be fitted on this fairly easy? I am assuming that since there is a 944 turbo both engines would be the same except for the compression ratios. So I would need to get some forged pistons? And would the rest of the engine handle the stress? Maybe just some transplants from a 944 turbo engine to make thi turbo ready.

Im looking for any information on big boost. I am looking for a car to replace my e30 because I cannot find any good e30s in my area but there are about 5 good 944s here.

Thanks guys
