There is a tune, says stage2 tune loaded. Everything looks well done. Any questions on specific things?
Essentially his boost gauge either reads nothing but vacuum or goes sporadic into boost. This is based on his 2 threads on the same subject just 2 days ago.

OP did you have the car inspected at all? That would have been the FIRST thing to do, especially when buying modded. Luckily most items listed are handling and no mods are out of Stage 2 parameters except the intake. (And depending on how old the tune is from Cobb, it may actually be when Cobb supported K&N)

One thing that I see that I would be suspect is is the "custom" wheel spacers. Essentially any wheel spacer used on these cars are bad UNLESS (well not unless, but this helps majorly) the wheel studs are the extended model. This is for insuring that enough thread grip length is present for the lug nuts. How do you know if you have extended lugs? Well without asking the previous owner, you'd kinda have to guess without taking a few things apart.
