Default Turbo S2K Problems

I am looking into buying an S2K and found a 2002 S2K with about 30k miles on it. The body is perfect with no scratches at all but I wanted to know what common problems arise when turboing a S2K...I know that the transaxle tends to break when you're pushing a lot of power but anything else? How does the transmission hold up and what should I check on the car other than say a compression check? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

edit: Sorry to clarify the S2K i found is already turboed that's why i wanna know what might be wrong with it

I dont really know common problems with turboing an S2000 but I would do a leak down test.

pistons, pistons, I would want to see reciepts for the low compression pistons that were hopefully put in. S2k's come with a woping 11:1 I believe, correct me if i am wrong. maybe connecting rods also ,but not sure on an S2K about stock durability being boosted.
