Walk away.

Potential problems:
No idea how much the diff/tranny was beat on. It’s on borrowed time.
Engine mounts. All that turbo and dp heat. It’s likely the passenger mount is gone.
No idea what kind of clutch you have. This is important.
No idea of engine condition. A leakdown and compression test will help but you still have no idea how much life Is left in that motor. You could be a few knock counts from hurting the ringlands.
No idea the quality of the engine tune.
No idea the quality of the fuel pump install.
No idea the condition of the turbo.
If it has gauges, you have no idea of the wiring that was done.

Also Ask yourself, why was this dropped off at a dealership where he most likely got pennies on the dollar.

Pick this up if you want an ambitious project and can get it for less than 5k.

I've seen a lot of those trash coilovers with air sleeves in place of springs.
