In that case, with that many miles and if your wanting to have it torn down and rebuilt, i'd put new pistons and rings in it, all new bearing, new oil cooler, get an egr cooler delete kit, rebuild/recondition the heads, new head gaskets with ARP's. Not sure where you're from, but if it's been through the snow and salt...most likely the exhaust manifolds and bolts are rusty and it wouldn't hurt putting new ones on and even getting new manifold bolts and gakets. I'd also look into reconditioning the stock turbo. If you have a shop do this, most likely their labor rate wont be cheap...probably anywhere between 75-100 bucks an hour. So you might be looking somewhere near 5K, but i could be off.
