Default 96 leg wagon to buy or not to buy?

I work at a dealership that took a 1996 legacy outback wagon as a trade. Body wise its in good shape now for some technical info

96 legacy outback wagon 2.5 engine 163,xxx miles auto trans price $800

is there any thing I should specifically look for, I know to check the clutch packs in the coupler by turning sharp and slow, any thing else?

The 96 Outback was odd. Had a different ECU which was tuned to run premium gas. Or so I have read.

I think you can swap the ecu for one from a 97-99 and run regular.

It's in your best interest to know when the timing belt/waterpump was done last.
