    For the 2 EVAP codes..personally i would start off by looking at the gas cap and seal and make sure they arent damaged/dry rotted...give the cap at least 3 clicks..Also do a thorough visual of all EVAP lines and make sure they are connected properly and in good condition than I would clear those codes and see if they come back..However, if you feel like digging into it further plug in the green PDI connectors and you should be able to hear the vent solenoid clicking (this solenoid is located right above the charcoal canister opposite your rear muffler)If its clicking chances are its working properly and that means also that your getting power and switched ground at the connector....You said the car has some mods? Has anyone messed with/replaced the fuel pump?...As for the P0483 Ive seen Subies throw this code for a stuck thermostat. Personally first of all I would make sure the fans are cycling and blowing hot air when they do cycle.....
