What are your thoughts on adding somthing like fuel stabilizer, and I know these cars are bad for sludge so keep the oil changes up but that's comin sense anyway, timing belt and pump were recently replaced to anything else I should be concerned about? Is there any maintance on the turbo?

Just run it couple times a month and keep the battery charged.if possible move it back and forth 10 feet and work all pedels and brakes. Mine was parked 6 moths and hee rear cals seized due to no use. No need for stabilzers just dont keep a full tank.
