Default Who owned this car?

So I bought my Blue 03 Subaru WRX hatchback about a year ago in Boise, ID and it already had some things done to it. One of them being NASIOC stickers on the rear running boards which eventually lead me to being here today. My question is. Does anyone know who owned this car before me? When I was talking with the dealer about the car, he showed me the carfax report and it said that the first two owners were from California and the car has been sold at auction 3 times. Wanna know anything more just ask!

Front of the car has eyelids over the headlights.


Deep scratch on the front of the hood that was pencil painted over.


Right side has a white NASIOC sticker on the rear of the running board.


Left side has the same sticker as the right.


Rear of the car has a blue NASIOC sticker on the bottom right of the window and it looks like they blacked out the AWD sticker next to it. Also there are flakes of blue over the impreza bumper mat like somone painted it. (maybe with the same paint as the scratch?) But it has since worn off.


Aftermarket exhaust. It has a carbon fiber wrap around it.


There are these three holes in the dash next to the change holder. Or in my case my ketchup holder lol


This is the engine. No major mods that I can find except the intake and the Evo 8 turbo.


Aftermarket intake


Also the rack on top has sun bleached marks like they had a yamaha rack on it for quite a while.

Your friend seems to be not so smart.

$20 bucks says he saw the mitsu badge on oh the IHI td04 turbo.

A turbo off an EVO will not fit a WRX without major modifications to the exhaust up pipe, down pipe, manifold, or turbo inlet pipe. Your friend's a retard.

If you are trying to figure out who owned the car, why are you asking people to ask more questions? We don't care if you know who owned it before or not.

After reviewing the pics of the car I have concluded that it has the following parts

Cosworth long block
gt42r
1200CC injectors with meth injection
Estimated horsepower is around.........well more then Vin Diesel could handle.

But in all honesty its probably just a stage 2 wrx. Looks to be stock turbo

I'm not really looking to show off the car. As much as a little curious about who owned it. The modifications were done by someone els who owned it. I was just pointing them out to see if anyone can say " hey I put those on there, I used to own it" lol

Am I the only one who thinks this thread is stupid as hell? What are you going to do if you find the previous two owners from California? Drive out there and high five the bro out of them? Oh and how about doing some research on what parts are on your car? Maybe pull some numbers off the turbo, google them, and figure out what's on there rather than taking your buddy's advice?
You're options for saving face in the RMIC are as follows:

1. Post tits
2. GTFO (get the f*** out)

Nice comment man I really appreciate the support. First of all if you didn't read the post I'm new so go ahead and make fun. It really makes me want to be on the site a lot more knowing that the only people who are going to post are people saying gtfo. I honestly have no clue what kind of turbo I have stock or not. Its probably stock but any info I get is going to help me figure it out. I guess your right. I will pull numbers off the turbo and google them. Putting the post in the CA section would help. And I have no clue what I'm going to do if/when I find who owned it before me. I'll probably ask what they drilled into the dash to make those three holes bc it's been bothering the crap out of me. And further more I don't really care if people on the forum think this post is stupid. It's a public forum an I can post anything I'd like. have a nice day

I wasn't making fun, just trying to help. Good luck with your three holes. Another hint, the fourth hole is right behind the knee. But it's like Hogwarts, you have to BELIEVE it's there.
