no, I don't plan on leaving the usa, but I have a guy that can hook me up, yeah I don't know there stock weight, i do know the st205 has 260bhp stock, but I dunno yet, i plan on getting this if everything goes as planned
Planned? Sounds like you haven't done enough research on this.

It's a pig, but shouldn't matter once you get it rolling. Aside from performance aspects, you should look around for the availability of parts, both aftermarket and stock parts. It's one thing to have a turboed car, and another thing to maintain it. The ST205 doesn't have much of an aftermarket, smaller compared to the 7th gen's.

actually I have done a bit of research, for aftermarket, therere a whole new world that opens up, like downpipe, turbo manifold, boost controller, bigger turbos, front mounts, bovs, plenty I think, in stock parts, I got a shop around me which provides everything I need, but I just gotta be sure this motor is good?

You'll probably have a harder time than usual finding replacement parts. Especially for the engine and tranny, and possibly the suspension if it uses a different setup than the regular Celica (Super Strut, maybe). The engine itself is as reliable as any Toyota if it was taken care of.
exactly
old, turbo cars break - all the time. When you balance the pleasure of driving compared with the headache of fixing the car all the time and finding replacement parts (especially considering this car was never sold in America), you'll find that its just not worth it in the end.

Nice but probably not fast in its current form. It's on a stock turbo, and has a larger fuel pump and injectors, but nothing to control them. Definitely clean looking, though, especially since it's in NY.

x1,000,000 for a NY car. It would've made a nice project car for me if I was older.
