    K&N intake, "BOV", Greddy turbo timer, 115K miles? With those mods combined with those miles, I would pass.

    Our cars have oil and water cooled turbo's. The main purpose of a turbo timer is to allow the turbo to cool after the car is turned off. Since our cars don't need them, it's usually a clear indication the person had no idea what they were doing with their mods.

    2004 Subaru Impreza Sedan WRX - 1 OWNER - Inventory | JD Motors | Auto dealership in Austin, Texas so maybe this one is better? I know it has BOV instead of bpv and don't like the price. If they are willing to come down, does this seem like a reasonable buy? Apologies if I'm bugging, I just find yalls opinions very helpful.

    Honestly I would be looking for something stock. It's possible that it is fine, but it is possible that the mods were not done correctly too, which I would assume if there is a BOV on there with those mods listed. It would be nice to see pictures of the engine bay, but I wouldn't need to see them to know I didn't want that car. If you do get something like this make sure and have a subaru mechanic look it over and also make sure the timing belt was done. Another thing you want to make sure of is that the car is tuned properly for the mods. But I think you should look for a car that is unmodified. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.

    Ya. I've found that they are few and very far in between around here. Just trying to find a toy really. My chick is gonna start driving the 2013 and I'm wanting one to mod and drive a bit harder.
