The car: 06 wrx with 61k miles on it for $14000. Body and interior are flawless. Does have a damage disclosure for hail damage that has since been repaired. Tranny has been built as of about 30k miles and has act clutch and lighter flywheel, at about 50k miles it got full 3" exhaust, cobb tuner, intake, and 20g ball bearing turbo. No fuel mods, still stock intercooler. I'm a little worried about this even though he said its been set at 12psi. It also is the TR, so I believe has a little bit larger injectors. He said he has autox'd it a handful of times and taken it to the strip twice. I'm going to look at and drive it tomorrow. I plan to do a compression test before I even think about laying money on it. I asked how many punks have test drove it and hotrodded it around and he said only 2 test drives and he went with so they were well behaved.
Anything else I should be worried about? Or with that turbo and no fuel upgrades should I just run? Trust me if I buy it, it will be babied until at least 750cc/wally 255/new tune are on it.
My background, I've been building DSMs for 10 years, I'd buy them at a junkyard with broken timing belt, etc and build/sell them. I had a bad ass Talon that I sold a while back, fully built. The way I see it if I can keep a dsm running, I shouldn't have a problem keeping a rex running right? I hope...
Thanks for the hopefully positive input... "putting on flame retardant suit and locationg my extinguisher..."
