Default New 86 turbo XT owner

I just added another turbo'd suby to my WRX, I know I'm not old school but I want to learn. Real quick, my wrx has crazy mods on it, I am putting a 2.5 STi block in it right now and STi RA gears. Other mods are run of the mill 300+ AWHP wrx mods, fuel, ecu, big turbo, full exhuast, FMIC that kind of stuff. I got a 86 XT (ea82) with push button 4wd on the 5 speed stick. I got a great deal on that car, that and I need to stop working on my wrx are the main reasons for buying it. I really want to make a rally car out of the XT, but what it will really become is another story. I was hopping you guys (and girls) could help me out on my way to XT greatness. Any info you have on the engine, drivetrain, body, wiring, hint/tip, anything, I would love to learn as much as I can about this car also.
I have a few questions off the bat, what kind of upkeep things should I look for? I want to get some more boost of off the turbo, but I think it's shot. It has oil/crap all over it, and there seems to be a lot of blow by also. There was also some, more then I would thing, in the turbo to TB pipe. Are there any other turbos that fit? Also anyone make an exhuast for it? I would thinking I would just go somewhere and have one made, whats a good tubing size? Don't want to over kill it.
ThankS for all the help.
