Default Buying a 92, worth it?

Hey all...im buying an old worn out tuner for $860. Its a 92 eclipse GS. I have no clue what all has been done to it and cant find out til it gets here. I'm having it shipped from MO to LA. Can you fellas see anything that isnt stock? Im kinda new to the tuner thing but i can find my way around an engine naturaly. I think its one of the gayest color schemes possible but i can fix that. Here she is.

Looks mostly stock w/ a filter thats all I can see from the engine pic. Dont take this the wrong way but that is an ugly body kit and the interior is not any better. When you get it do the 60k service. Timing belt, filters, fluid flushes and so on... Godd Luck!

Oh man that thing has been molested to the MAX.

Well its non turbo, I see that much. Nothing else apparent apart from the air filter. It just looks like its had every single thing painted a different color like a mexican clown costume. It looks like someone put 6 different paint cans in the interior, and placed a firework in them and ran.

LMFAO, Thats why i said its possibly the gayest looking scheme i'v ever seen in my life. Thats the first thing i thought when i saw it, but the price seemed pretty good. It reminds me of a childs playroom or somethin. I seriously wonder what the guy was thinking that did it.

I dont expect it to be no monster, being that its a old *** 4 banger and all. But what would be a few worth while mods to get her old *** moving a little quicker? Im gonna rebuild the engine for sure and the rest depends on what i come up with when i get to mess with it in person. Cosmetics wise,That hideous blue and orange paint sheme is on my **** list along with the toyroom interior. And yeah even the wallmart rims are getting the boot. I think a new body kit is in order also though i dont know which one i want yet. So i guess i got some wrench time ahead of me but thats what i got it for. I get bored working on dirt bikes only. i got it simply to have as a toy, however i do plan to drive it quite a bit so i want to throw on as many mods as i can without making it a towtruck special if you know what i mean. Or in other words i want to balance performance and reliability as much as possible.

There isn't a whole lot to make a 2.0 n/t fast. You can install 93-94 turbo cams, remove the balance shafts, put in a hard pipe intake and full exhaust.
