Not sure what a BPV is and the owner is not aware of any tuning, he is the second owner but it doesnt have an access port or anything of that nature.

Ouch. Don't mean to rain on your parade but do not buy this car until you're 100% sure it was tuned for those hard parts. If no tune was ever placed on that engine other than the stock tune, it's a ticking time bomb.

Car was tuned in Dallas after the front mount, greddy boost controller and blow off valve about three and a half years ago. About a year ago this guy added the headers and catted down pipe. Boost controller is only set at 8 psi and I haven't messed with it yet.
