    Thanks all! Turns out, when I bought it, it already had a Cobb cold air intake and an "Infiniti" exhaust (unsure of the actual exhaust, just what I was told).

    talking with him in chat the car seems to have a turboback with a catted DP, cobb sf intake, no gauges inside, does not know if it was tuned, runs strong, 7 year/70k mile warranty.,almost 100% bumper to bumper, which im curious how the dealer gave that considering the mods. he will post up more pictures of around the turbo, engine bay so we can look and see if there are any other mods done. hopefully he can get in touch with the PO to see if it was tuned.

    If those are the only mods then my guess would be that the car was running an off the shelf map with a COBB AP and before the car was sold it was un-married. One can only guess, but I suspect that. If it was me and even if the original buyer told me that it has been properly tuned, I would not believe them and still want to get it tuned for piece of mind...Calling WTF tuning!

    +1. I would hook up an AP to that ASAP. Stay out of boost in the meantime just to be sure...

    still wondering if it was previously tuned but try to stay out of boost until you get the AP and flash the stage 2 map.

    looks stock otherwise and clean
