I have the option to buy a 1991 Mazda 626 GT Turbo in good condition. The car has close to 300,000K but appears to be well taken care of. Assuming the engine passes the compression test I'm wondering first what areas of the car would I be looking at addressing first, parts to replace, etc. just to keep it running normally for time to come? Secondly if you had around $1000 to invest in improving the car what would you spend it on? Generally I hear stability, suspension, wheels & tires, brakes before engine mods. Not looking to go all out and make a hot rod but I would like to tune it up a little. Any brands and specific items appreciated.
Just put in maf sensor and it was good for most of the day driving once I sit and idle same surging issue just took off battery going to check codes and then run for awhile then check codes any other ideas??

New to the forum and 626 world...
Purchased a 79 626 sedan in Feb and finally gotten around to exploring the water oil mixing in the MA.
Thought it may have been a gasket but they all looked pretty good.
After taking the water pump off I noticed a few fractures in the timing cover. Then pulled the timing cover foward.to have a look and the back appears to have a series of cracks in it. Seems to be the only place that could be leaking...
So wondering if anyone may know where I could find a timing cover?
Any help is appreciated.
