Default Thinking about buying a sti and need some advice!

Hey everyone, I hope i can get some help help or insight. I am looking at a 2007 WRX STI and it only has 23,000 miles.

The dealer ship guy told me the reason it's throwing the CEL and codes is because the other guy had some modifications like a intake etc and when he went to sell it, he just took all the sensors and what not out..

He cranked the car up for me and it sounded great, engine idled for 5-10 minutes, no problem... Cold AC etc.

I asked if i could see the codes on the code reader. We hooked it up and 18 codes came back. They are:

Code: P0458
Description: Evaporative emission (EVAP) system, EVAP valve - circuit low
Specification: Wiring short to earth, EVAP valve



Code: P2016
Description: Intake manifold air control actuator position sensor/switch, bank 1
- circuit low
Specification: Wiring short to earth, intake manifold air control actuator
position sensor/switch



Code: P2021
Description: Intake manifold air control actuator position sensor/switch, bank 2
- circuit low
Specification: Wiring short to earth, intake manifold air control actuator
position sensor/switch



Code: P2008
Description: Intake manifold air control actuator, bank 1 - open circuit
Specification: Wiring open circuit, intake manifold air control actuator



Code: P2011
Description: Intake manifold air control actuator, bank 2 - open circuit
Specification: Wiring open circuit, intake manifold air control actuator



Code: P2431
Description: Secondary air injection (AIR) system, air flow/pressure sensor,
bank 1 - range/performance problem
Specification: Wiring, air flow/pressure sensor



Code: P2433
Description: Secondary air injection (AIR) system, air flow/pressure sensor,
bank 1 - circuit high
Specification: Wiring short to positive, air flow/pressure sensor



Code: P0016
Description: Crankshaft position/camshaft position, bank 1 sensor A -
correlation
Specification: Wiring, CKP sensor, CMP sensor, mechanical fault



Code: P2021
Description: Intake manifold air control actuator position sensor/switch, bank 2
- circuit low
Specification: Wiring short to earth, intake manifold air control actuator
position sensor/switch



Code: P2008
Description: Intake manifold air control actuator, bank 1 - open circuit
Specification: Wiring open circuit, intake manifold air control actuator



P20011



Code: P2431
Description: Secondary air injection (AIR) system, air flow/pressure sensor,
bank 1 - range/performance problem
Specification: Wiring, air flow/pressure sensor

Code: P2433
Description: Secondary air injection (AIR) system, air flow/pressure sensor,
bank 1 - circuit high
Specification: Wiring short to positive, air flow/pressure sensor



Code: P0016
Description: Crankshaft position/camshaft position, bank 1 sensor A -
correlation
Specification: Wiring, CKP sensor, CMP sensor, mechanical fault



Code: P2419
Description: Evaporative emission (EVAP) switching valve - circuit low
Specification: Wiring short to earth, EVAP switching valve




I just want to know if any of you guys could let me know anything about some of those codes as well as if it's worth buying..How much is it to fix some of those things? It seems they are all emission related. Maybe the cat has been removed?

Thanks everyone, have a nice day!

depends how much you enjoy working/repairing cars. Personally, i havent dealt with these codes specifically, but I am tired of high maintenance myself.

I wouldnt even bother. who knows, it may be a simple fix, but i wouldnt want to risk it

I don't want to work on it much if any. I was planning to take it to the subaru dealership and see how much they would estimate to fix everything..

I wouldnt think it would be too much if it's just sensors? The car sounded great.

If its all stock and he used to have it stage 2 ect, it could tuned for those mods and now is throwing codes because the stock parts are back on it and the ecu is still compensating for the intake, exhaust. Not positive, just a thought because I doubt he "took out all the sensors"

It definitly makes since... Do you know what would be needed in order to get the codes off, or basically fix the car if it were due to stage 2?

Like i said, the motor ran for 10 minutes or so and sounded wonderful.

If you even THINK of buying this without a professional paid inspection, you are nuts.
