I picked up the buggy for $3500. but I fitted the turbo myself, but I did the bottom end, Air cooled engines running lean at 7 psi tend to have a short life span. I am rebuilding the engine now with stainless pipes and manifold and an extensive oil cooling system. I am also playing with an injector based fuel enrichment system. will post photoes when finished.
