Make sure the aluminium isn't to oxidized. That could be signs of water damage. Also when he pops the VC check the cam lobes for scoring or scratches. Make sure the VC isn't caked with black/brown **** build up. That could be signs of infrequient oil changing. Also check under the IC make sure the injectors look like they are in good shape. Chace the turbo for play,oil blowby. Make sure it spinns freely etc. Also check the coolant make sure its not oily and ****.

I may be forgeting stuff but just go through it if you see somthing ugly speak up.

Make sure the guy pops the VC off for you! You absoultly need to check the lobes and build up.
