    I got a question

    Hey, so this guy is selling an 04 Wrx and it been talking to him. He says It will need to be towed because you can't drive it till its tuned tune or else u can possibly blow the engine. It has bigger injectors, sti inercooler, perrin silicone hoses, bigger fuel pump, perrin cam gear. Do you really need a tune for these things? Or is he trying to sell me a piece of poo?

    yes, you absolutely need a proper tune for these. However, I would be wondering why he installed all of those parts and is now suddenly trying to sell a car that needs a tune to run...

    When I see a car for sale which has recently had a few mods, I always think the owner has screwed things up and just wants out of their project.

    Bill raises a big red flag. I don't see any point in putting the time and money into those mods just to sell it

    The car is likely blown up and he thinks a tune will fix it.
