    TurboXS "Type H" BOV will whoosh without being crazy loud. You'll also need the H-WRXG4 adaptor to make it bolt up. You should really scroll up and read what people are saying about the BOVs.

    The stock BOV is the best choice by far. ---<<<(((The BIG BOV thread)))>>>---

    What is wrong with the engine?

    It's impossible to know how much if any the previous owner could have hurt the engine. You don't know if there's other bad mods that the owner did either. I would stay away from that car. There's plenty of unmodified WRXs out there! The car is probably perfectly fine but why take the risk?

    yah i dont want to take the risk either but its being sold by a dealer and the only thing that the guy did to it was put a BOV on it everything else is stock!!! and i cant find any stock subis around where i live either they are all junkers or stupid kids have moded the **** out of them and they are about to grenade on them at any moment ( i live is socal area =( ) the dealer also offer life time power train warranty as long as i own the car if that helps the situation out at all

    I'm sure the lifetime powertrain warranty is just a gimmick but who knows, the dealer might actually be reputable! I just seriously doubt anybody that sells used cars is reputable.

    Have the car inspected by an independent mechanic and if everything else checks out fine and they give you a good price, then go for it. The good thing about buying used cars from dealers is that they're required in most places to give you at least a 30 day bumper to bumper warranty too, and sometimes you can bargain with them and get up to a year.

    you should schedule to have it looked at by a subaru mechanic. you'll have to pay for it, most likely, for an hour's work, but $100 now is a lot cheaper than $1000s in a couple months..

    tell the dealer you want to have it looked at by a subaru mechanic.. if they agree, then you schedule a time for one to look at it. then you could prolly take it to the near-by subaru mech, have it checked out, pay the man, then make a decision with the seller.
