Whats the rest of the car like?
Good body, good suspension, good clutch/DMF etc?
Might be a good candidate to receive a replacement engine (worst case scenario), or if you're lucky just a replacement turbo..
Lets say the rest of the car is in top condition... £1-2k of engine rebuilding will give you a car with a known good quality engine that's not about to go pop, with the rest of the car already being known to you.. You can pick up second hand GTs for that price range.... But probably not with mileage as low as 70k, and potentially with not as good condition body etc...
Sometimes it's better the devil you know!
