If it's of the Mitsubishi generation of 3204's... then I wouldn't worry about it. They're a pretty good engine, turbo or not. Where most 3200 series engiens got a bad rep was in tandem axle trucks and other places where the 3208 was run hard under constant heavy load at high speed. In those cases they were well known for coming unglued.
As others have said... I'd be more concerned about the condition of the hydro and undergear. That's not to say you shouldn't get one with a hydro... just make sure you work it up, get it hot and see how it behaves. The same could be said for a power shift unit a you want to know how the torque pulls and how clean it shifts...
The 3116 and other engines in it's family weren't exactly known for their top quality service lives either...
