This is a discussion on I know this is not right! within the General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents. forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; So here is what it looks like under my hood can I get some 02WRX pic responses of wh at ...
I don't understand your question. Are you wondering what engine parts are modified?
If so, here's what I see:
*Aftermarket turbo inlet (the stock ones commonly crack, could have been replaced due to age)
*Hose to boost gauge, I'm guessing
*Amplifier battery cable
*Missing washer fluid bottle cap
*Missing cover over boost control solenoid
*Judging from the markings on the turbo and the factory heat shield, I'm guessing it still has the stock TD-04 turbo.
*DIY intercooler intake. Does it have an STI hoodscoop?
*Not sure what the cooler thing is below the grill. Oil cooler, maybe? Never seen a cylindrical one on a car though.
*Tow hook cover missing
*Damage to driver's side fog light housing
trying to figure out what it looks like stock with everything in the right place so I can undo the weird crap going on
I bought it like this and the rally shop pointed out a few things but I want her to be put together proper
Google images, people here's photos and albums.

The stock bypass valve is not visible in its normal location.
In this picture, you see the lines coming from the turbo to the white T, then straight across to the wastegate actuator. The one coming off perpendicular should be going to the stock bypass valve. It is probably going to a manual boost controller instead, or possibly another boost controller. Your runaway boost is associated with that or a leak in these lines. Follow the one from the T and post what you find. Also, you should be able to feel the restrictor pill in the line from the turbo to the T.
Also, while you are trying to figure it out, you can just run a line straight across from the turbo to the actuator and that will put you at a safe ~8psi max for now. Just take the T and the two lines that run straight through it out and replace it all with one longer line from the turbo to the actuator. Don't throw out the T or the restrictor pill if it is there as you will need them to fix it right.
