    Question From 4x4's 2 AWD'S

    Hey guys,

    So im new to all this import scene if you want to help please do!
    I bought a 03 WRX this month for 6700 cash w/ 120k miles... TX car no rust, good deal or no? Its got no real flaws everything works good and looks and drives nice.

    My real question is how do i know whats done to it and what i should change back to stock like the cold air on it. Because i have no idea if its tuned or not?? should i change timing belt?

    Things i found it has
    -FULL cobb exhaust turbo back
    -(Some type of springs which are green)
    -Mishimoto intake (that has been chopped up)
    -Mishimoto top and bottom radiator hoses
    -Pillar gauges oil temp,pressure, and boost

    Also fyi I bought it just to drive it utill the wheels fall off not supe her up. Any suggestions on what to check and replace would help out alot! Much thanks

    See if the timing belt has been replaced. If it has not, replace it yesterday. There's at least one how-to thread on the site and on several other sites too. I'd do the water pump, the tensioner, and probably the pulleys too. The spark plugs are due at 120K, as are all the fluids. See manual for specs and info plus the schedule itself. Enjoy the car.

    ^^what he said on the Timing belt.

    The springs are likely made by TEIN.

    Can post a picture of the intake? I don't understand what you mean by cut up.

    Whats up with the black bumper?

    Thanks for the quick responses. My biggest fear was the timing belt I will for sure get that checked out right away. I have no manuals for it yet so thanks for the heads up on the other things SD.


    I will try to get a pic up of intake. As far as the bumper i know its a joke... Im taking it the original owner was trying to hide scuffs and chips to the paint. one thing i need to fix before it bugs me to much.
