Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

A smok­ing turbo en­gine should be avoided at all costs be­cause a re­build is com­fort­ably into four fig­ures. Mod­i­fi­ca­tions and power boosts are com­mon so make sure you know what’s been done; they may be too ex­treme for some more con­ser­va­tive tastes. Fas­tid­i­ous main­te­nance is the key to keep­ing the 7M-GE and blown 7M-GTE mo­tors healthy, so cars lack­ing his­tory should be ap­proached with ex­treme caution, but in any case it’s worth a check for mi­nor oil leaks and un­even run­ning caused by en­gine man­age­ment woes.
