Hi, I'm new here and i'm just trying to get some questions answered about this car that i'm thinking about buying. I just test drove a 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX today that has 76,000 miles on it and it looks like a couple of mods. From what i can see it has a K&N Cold Air Intake, Exhaust might just be CAT back, a boost gauge that sits on the top left of the steering column, and a silver rectangular box with lines going in and out near turbo area and i'm not sure if its a oil catch or what? This car is at a dealership and it had one owner and i'm trying to see if i can get a hold of that owner to ask some questions but can't until the sales person asks him if he want to talk to me. I noticed a couple of things that seemed different.
1st - I noticed a burning like brake smell coming from the turbo area and nowhere else.
2nd - When turning right, the front left squeals but goes away when pressing the brakes.
3rd - A little bit of a burning oil smell inside the car, no smoke when idle or on take off. Do these burn a little oil over time?
It runs and drives awesome, shifts smooth and pulls really hard but i'm just not sure with the burning brake smell coming from the turbo area. If you guys could help me out i would appreciate it a lot.
