Thank you, i will be posting pictures on my profile and here soon. The place i bought it from specialized in rarer cars, STi, 335i, evo, AMG etc and they said they go through a few things before they sell any of their cars, whatever they mean by that.
- Heat shield may be removed, i have personally tightened the manifold bolts and checked to make sure most the visible bolts and nuts in the engine bay were to spec torq.
-Oil looks relatively new, changing this week for reassurance, Rotilla 5w 40 good? and should i order a OEM Oil filter or what are some suggestions?
-ECU flashed? i dont think so, i was given a AEM downpipe with purchace of the car, installed it, Cruise light flashed and check engine light. Reinstalled OEM with cats ( didnt like the sound of downpipe) and unpluged negative from battery. Back to good no lights appearing.
