Russ, Replace the timing chain, check for vacum leaks, replace plugs, plug wires, rototr & cap, air filter and catalytic con. The turbo could be why it's running rough if it misses on hard acceleration, and you hear a pronounced high pitched whine. At 220K you're just getting it broken in !!! Regards, Steve '88 900T 176K: original clutch, and until last week orig. rotors all 4 wheels.
