    going to look at a 06 wrx

    so i found the exact subaru i want and im going to look at it wedsnay hes located in socal and im in norcal so its going to be a bit of a drive. anyways i asked the guy if there were any issues with the car as i was not wanting to drive 5 hours and find something wrong that wasnt mentioned before hand. he said the only thing that bothered him on the car was the cheap uppipe that was on before he bought it, he says the gaskets are somewhat rusted. he will include the oem gaskets he ordered but im just wonderring if this is bad that these gaskets are somewhat rusted. are there any issues that will be caused because of this? thanks in advance guys, im pretty new to this whole turbo fast car thing, i come from the offroad toyota side so its a little bit different ha

    If it doesn't leak, it doesn't leak. However I find it odd that an 06 has a replaced up pipe. Is the car extensively modified?

    If it's not smogged, walk. Ask if it had more mods that were removed. Check for full service history.

    To be clear, that's exactly what I meant: don't buy it.
