Default New '03 turbo owner

So i should be receiving my '03 GT 5-speed this saturday. I bought it online, and it's the first time I've bought my car online, so I'm a little scarred about that. Taking it in to get an inspection done at my local Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge dealer, but was wondering if there is anything that I should look out for, and I want to catch anything early so if there is something major wrong with it, I can take it back.

I have a good friend that owns an '01 standard PT and an '03 standard PT both with automatics. They have been nothing but rock solid, reliability wise. I also have another friend with a stage 3 SRT-4 with 60K+ HARD driven miles without much issue from the drive train (except for his stock clutch starting to go, but go figure with stage 3), so I'm pretty certain that the motor is pretty stout.

But I figure you guys point me in the right direction for trouble spots. Not new to the whole forum thing as I've done them for my last two vehicles 1. Ford Thunderbird ( 2. Ford Contour SVT ( So I look forward to getting to throw in my .02 every once in awhile.

I don't see why I wouldn't like it, if all goes well, I might start some light modding, hard pipes (if I can still find them), a Diablosport tuner, maybe an exhaust way down the line.
