I just purchased a used 2008 Impreza WRX from a dealer. The exhaust is louder than normal and the car seems pretty quick for stock. Is there any way to tell if the chip has been reflashed using a tuner such as COBB? I am unable to contact the original owner so I have no idea where to start tuning. I am going to put the car on a lift this week and check for exhaust mods or damage.

If you or any friends have a tactrix cable you should be able to look at the rom vs a stock map. Take a pic of the downpipe(by the turbo)/intake and post them up.

If the DP bolts have any sign they've been touched it means it probably was modded. It's all about looking carefully at the car and some specific parts.
