The 2nd one is missing the boost tubes running across the tmic and has them replaced with some braided steel lines and some weird perrin boost controler or something. I don't know what that is. It has some funky bpv/bov with what looks like gasket sealer on it. How do you get a STI with a single din radio and OZ premium wheels? I know the 04 didn't come with a radio. But did the STI in 05 only get a 6 disc changer if it had a premuim package? I don't know about the OZs....I'm thinking their aftermarket as everyone knows BBS rims are what normally come on the STIs.

Those are fuel lines guys. They have a set of fuel rails installed.

Who puts on aftermarket fuel rails for a stock-like setup? That car's clearly been to hell and back. Fuel lines are hard to part back to stock.

...well, that means it'll be ready to go back to hell with the addition of a few parts that are relatively easy to bolt back on. There's always a bright side, I guess?

Ha, that's awesome. I haven't called on it yet, I'm still waiting to see what happens with my car. If I could get it sold I'd be ready to buy... it's a long story but my wife might need a new car now too. If I do have to keep mine, it's getting another engine overhaul, paint and a new turbo. I'm excited for both honestly.
