The 3spd slushboxes, especially in turbos, fail like clockwork. Good time to convert to 5spd. If turbo, also consider the turbo and headgasket. Otherwise, that's pretty young. Most 1986+ 5spd 900s that I've seen and had have gone to 180k easily before wanting things like clutch, starter, alternator, etc. Go to and look at the tech faqs to get a better idea. lycka till!
