Hey guys - sorry not here for a while - Mom had 5 Heart Attacks, sold my home to move in to help her, Wife had gal blatter emergency surgery, house fire, so on - such is life

So still have the 2018 WRX WRB - no real issues

JUST TODAY - bought a 2011 WRX STI - WRB -

Blouch 1.5 DOM Turbo
Perrin Cold Air Intake
Perrin Top Mount upgrade Intercooler
Process West TMIC
1000 ID Injectors
Perrin Equal Length Headers
Perrin Full Exhaust
Tial External Waste gate
Exedy twin disk clutch
Perrin short throw shifter
Tuned by Mike B @ EFI Connecticut - https://www.efilogics.com/
COBB tuner - (No Idea how to use)
Every 3k oil change with Rotcella T6


So got a great price and buyer was great - WOW great experience - and I ask if there was any issues - none but a tire sensor needs replaced and missing antenna

The seller mentioned the 4th cly issue - I was revving it - showing off to my son - I specify ask if it was an issue - if it was low/broke - told no

The car was and will be serviced by PROCOM in Toms River NJ - https://www.procomracing.com/

BUT mentioned that these cars have a CYL 4 issue - when I contacted PROCOM and EFI

They both said they cant give me the history - but PROCOM said I should get the compression check -

they know the car - and again said the STI has a issue with mods and the 4th cly

Also on the invoice for PROCOM is NGK EJ25 1 Step Colder plugs ? - is that the same as the 1000 ID Injectors?

Should I be worried?

It doesn't smoke and no CEL - just getting worried that the seller, the tuner, and the team that services the car have mentioned the same thing - on THIS Car

Again sorry I was MIA for so long - and than thank you in advance for any and all advice

Well yeah. I'm not sure what "Cyl4 issues" you are referring -- nothing was explicitly stated as being a problem. Did I miss something?

What was the result of the Compression test?
