What are you talking about?

BTW, don't buy that car. It has an STi gauge setup on it so who knows how many miles it actually has.

Look at the front mount and where it goes into the intake ITS REVERSED! Dont worry i already haver an 05, i have never seen the intake swapped around like that before just thought i would get some insight why someone would do that

Reversed intake manifolds are common. You've never seen that before?

straighter piping with the FMIC permitting greater air flow. Also gives more space for the turbo. Certainly not something generally considered for small turbo TMIC WRXs.

I'm not a fan of the little fins on the corners of the front bumper or the vortex generator on top of the back glass

Na ive never seen that, and i figured it was to make more space for the turbo, that would deff make things easier when working around in there

I'd hope it is never thought of for a TMIC, even for a large TMIC. Think about it, why would you turn it around so you have to run a pipe from the TMIC around to the TB?

People have been doing reversed manifolds for a long time.It also cuts down on the length of piping for the FMIC and keeps the intercooled piping from going back over the engine and getting heatsoaked.

I think if anyone did do that, he should be banned from owning a subie, that would be an embarassment

It's not THAT cheap (imo). I think it's well priced. If it weren't for the low mileage, I'd say it was overpriced. Just because it's somewhat highly modified doesn't mean someone will buy it for 20k. Any relatively intelligent person selling a modded wrx will know that he/she will not make back the vast majority of what was spent.

anyone notice that he is using a AVC to tune his car?? maybe im wrong but that is some old technology and for spending that type of money on that car why wouldnt he get something better than that? and that car could have over 100,000 miles on that as well
