Subject: 900 Turbo: Switch engines, or ring job?

The 87 900 turbo I'm thinking of buying is burning oil. The owner says Saab mechanic told him it needed rings, and the job would be $600. I called my mechanic and he said rings are RARELY the problem. What else can cause oil smoke to come out upon acceleration? Question: should I try to fix the otherwise beautiful manual 87 turbo, or should I take the strong engine out of my aging 83 automatic turbo with the bad transmission (this job is about $600 as well, I'm told) and put it into the 87 Turbo? Thanks, Paul Sent via Before you buy.
