Should I ride it out a while longer or swap it out.
It's a piece of history this little snail!

I agree, if there isnt anything wrong with it or a need to replace it, then dont. Im sure you could spend the money on other stuff for the car.

You can't determine a turbos condition simply by looking at it.

Messing with it is a significant amount of work. Functionally the rust isn't a real problem, but it does raise the chances of snapping bolts on removal.

Reminds me of when I used to be able to see my trans dipstick

Your pics make me think your car is in nice shape! :)

She has been well cared for by one owner who kept it stock.
I look at it like adopting a old dog lol
The turbo holds boost good according to the gauge . If its rusty I guess she ain't leaking
