I'm driving up to Long Island NY next weekend to buy an '02 with 49,000. But it's one of those double-edged swords. The mods on the car are exactly what I'm lookin for. But obviously the more you upgrade a car- the more trouble you can get into. So I'm not sure what sort of reliability or maintenance issues I should be aware of, given these particular mods.
So, here's the list, if you guys could take a look and let me know what you think, I would really, really appreciate it... here we go:
STI 550cc Injectors
STI catless Up-Pipe
3inch Invidia downpipe with 3inch BORLA Hush Catback exhaust
K&N air filter
PERRIN Silicone Turbo inlet
EVANS waterless coolant
Mobil 1 every 3k miles
Amsoil Synthetic Fluid
New EXEDY Stage 1 Organic clutch
PERRIN Tuner Springs 1.8 inch drop
KYB AGX adjustable struts
COBB TUNING Swaybars front and rear with
RACING BRAKE slotted rotors frt and rear with Stainless Steel lines
CARBOTECH Red street brake pads
MOTUL brake fluid
Normally I avoid buying modded cars - but these mods seem like they were done right, from the right brands etc. Almost all of these upgrades are things I've found supported on this board and others... so I'm very hopeful.
I get the feeling this guy has done the job right. He also says the car has never been raced, clutched dumped or dynoed. Which is a good sign.
Anyway - any thoughts guys?
Thanks in advance!
