    New subie owner 2002 wrx fix up

    Hey guys I just bought an 02 wrx that needs a little TLC. I need headlights,tune up, a bumper, fix an exhaust leak at the downpipe and its road ready. But I was wondering since the previous owner put a bigger 16g turbo what else besides a tune should I need to ensure my car is running up to par?

    Might want to ask the previous owner exactly what he had done to the car. If it was running a 16G with no injector or fuel pump upgrades and no tune, damage may have occurred and definitely will soon if it already hasn't.

    Man I didn't wanna hear that. He said with the 16g he wouldn't need an fuel system upgrades but if he got the 20g he would of. New to this I'm slowly learning.

    Sounds like he should have done his research. Dont worry, get it pro tuned and engine inspected, u should b ok. Dont bang on it until u do maintainance/upgrades to cope. It sucks buying a modded car unless he hands u a list of exactly what was done and by whom. U really never know by looking at it if he missed something
