Before you buy have them pull the Type 1 and Type 2 over revs off the DME. If there are ANY Type 2 over revs walk away. A Type 2 is when someone shifts from 4th to 3rd instead of 4th to 5th. This is where you will see bent valves, rods, etc. It is not uncommon to see Type 1's, but if it is more than 10 again I would think about it. It would mean that the car had hit the fuel cutoff and been past redline more than 10 times since it was new.
