Might have to keep looking or save for a new one.
Super stock 13.5 turbo really is just a slightly milder version of Touring Mod. Nobody at our club has gone any faster with their mods than I have when I was running SS. Very few people have managed to get onto lap 15 at all in our club racing let alone 15 laps 15s. I think 13.5 Turbo would be a good combo of speed but not too much torque.
As said above about the xrays is pretty much true, just be careful not to buy a car with worn out belts/ universals, diffs etc. If any of these items are worn, it can be pretty expensive to replace and it will make you wonder if it was really worth trying to do things on the cheap.
