I'm thinking of buying a 05 wrx

The one I'm looking at an 05. It has 83000kms and Some minor mods just wondering what I should look for to see if its been hammered? The Body has 238k but the engines been swapped at 83000

That means the car has 238k on it, not 83k. The engine isn't the only part affected by wear.
gunk007 and DB_VW like this.

Take it to a competent mechanic or a performance shop familiar with Subaru cars and ask them to look it over.

I would be trying to quantify the cost to put it on the road safely with this new buyer inspection, and ask the seller to adjust their purchase price accordingly.
