    It cannot be legally registered in CA. What are you going to do for a smog certificate?

    Neither the 04 nor the 06 will pass scrutiny by anyone with a hint of what they're seeing. Smogging the car should not be your problem; it's the seller's problem. If they can find someone to do it, great, you can drive around for two years or until somebody pulls you over and decides to check and knows what they're seeing -- whichever comes first.

    I'd recommend a stock car with a full service history using authentic Subaru parts. That's just me though.

    If you insist on that car, make him do the doable then and present you with a smog certificate. If you find another car, make it one that's stock, with a full service history, and documented use of authentic Subaru parts for its maintenance. Oh -- and also a smog certificate...

    He's running an upgraded turbo and [presumably] STi injectors. You can't just remove the DP "turn down" the Cobb. I'd shy away from both...
