Default Thinkin about a subby..

well i currently drive a honda prelude and i'm tryin to sell it but this guy i know has an 02 wrx and is considering a trade..

here are the mods on the car:

New plugs and timing belt
GFB (Go Fast Bits) Alum. Pullys
GFB Blow Off
2.75in catless Uppipe
3inch catless Downpipe to 'greddy' exhaust.
AEM Cold Air Intake
XPT Stg2 Tune.
Carbon Fiber Engine dress up kit

I'm not really familiar with the wrx engine and boost.. So i'm still learning the ropes but does that sound like a pretty good setup? and is there anything I should check before I dive into getting this car?

Get it to an experienced Subaru shop and have them check it over. Buying a Subaru is little different than other cars, but be SURE you check it out one way or another before buying.

yup, mine spun a bearing a month after i bought it with 93k on it. It was a good price but I am doing a motor. eh, trade-off's right? But really, get it checked out thouroughly, compression test, leak down test, the whole nine yards.
