The previous owner had it tweaked up a bit. He estimated high 200's for HP but never did a dyno. Its in solid shape and has been well maintained. Any advice for keeping it up and running for the long term?

Keep under 2500 rpm, keep your fluids up, and make sure your fuel doesn't sit too long. Thats my course of action with mine.
These engines are capable of long lives with just the basic maintenance stuff.
Mine is crusty and old with a quarter million miles on it and it starts up with no fuss, no smoke, and gets pretty decent mpg's.
I'm going to change the oil next summer and do all the filters.

Thanks for the advice. Need practice driving, the 7 speed manual has some tricky shifting.
