    Hey, y'all. As the title says, I'm new around here from northern Georgia. Just purchased my first Subaru (long time in the plans) a few weeks ago. 2008 WRX in spectacular condition. The previous owner put Tein SuperStreets in all four corners with the EDFC, SPT exhaust, SPT boost gauge, and Perrin sway bars. I have a feeling a lot more was done, then taken off prior to selling. A couple holes in the steering column held a gauge at one point, and too many parts in the motor (bov, intake) are brand new.
    I'd love to start planning mods now, but only time will tell. I have a lot of money in my F150 already and shifting the focus to the new ride will take a bit of planning.
    Glad to be here and looking forward to learning from everyone already here!

    Thanks! I'm near Atlanta, actually.

    I posted some pictures taken by the dealer the day he put her up / we took her home. Soon as I can resize some of the ones I've taken, I'll post them, too.

    Welcome! Are you able to have any contact with the previous owner? If I were you, I'd want to find out specifics on how far the car was modded, and then what exactly was done when they were prepping it for sale. The issue is this: there may have been other mods done that required a tune. If those parts were taken off and the tune was not changed accordingly, you might be looking at a time bomb.
