    My first wrx

    as you can see im brand new to the site.

    I'm picking up my first suby on monday:
    03 wrx wagon
    130,000

    I dont plan to do too much to it, keeping it mostly stock.
    a few questions:
    1. this thing is a 1 owner family owned car, hasnt been hammered on. that being said, how long should I expect the turbo to last?

    2. I am considering removing the recirc hose from the blow off valve, how do I do it? and will it cause problems?

    Nice car. Good idea. Make sure the timing belt has been replaced and that all manufacturer-recommended maintenance is performed according to the routine.

    1. this thing is a 1 owner family owned car, hasnt been hammered on. that being said, how long should I expect the turbo to last?
    As long as any other component of the motor. Ideally for the life of the car.

    2. I am considering removing the recirc hose from the blow off valve,
    Don't.

    will it cause problems?
    Yes.
