Just look for all the pieces that would make it complete. Up pipes, down pipe, turbo pedistal, intake, turbo oil feed line, intake hat, nuts/bolts, ect...
Inpect the turbo, rotate the compressor wheel and see if it contacts the housing. Check for side to side and in and out play, there should be very minimal. If it does seem like it needs rebuilt tell that to the guy and try to lower the price, rebuilds arent that expensive.
