Over the years the restrictive aftermarket items installed to get grey market cars to pass EPA requirements damaged these turbos. So if one has not been rebuilt it will generally soon need it if driven in any sort of sporty manor. It is one reason turbos have a bad name for expensive repairs. After all if porsche did not feel the cars were able to be made to have good Hp and pass EPA testing untill 1986 with all their engineering abilities? As for the need to be repainted, that may not be good.
