    Find out if it was tuned. With TBE exhaust you really should be but it's not as huge of an issue on 2.0L engines as it is on the 2.5L's. A TBE is a pretty standard mod for all WRX's as once you have that you can safely run Stage 2. You can't run one without the other. How much is the asking price?

    well hes asking 7500 for it...
    i drove it and it feels pretty clean...shifts good, doesnt hesitate when you get on it, when you let off it coasts smoothly...

    the only two problems is that it needs either a power steering pump or line...
    and a dent on the hood...about the size of a coffee cup around and about a 1/4" deep...
