What to look for?

Alright im looking at buying a used diy turbo kit in the next few days. Its a Turbonetics t-series 72mm P-trim .70 ar is what im told.
I've never messed with turbo's before and am wondering what to look for while checking out the kit since its off the car. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

just check for end play on the turbine shafts, and marks on the inside of the turbine housing for wear on the rotor's........turbonetic's make's a great turbo, so i personally believe you will be alright......

Any pictures of the kit? Is it intercooled? What sort of numbers was it getting on the original car? How well did it fit?
