I would never buy a car that has caught on fire. Watch those wires, they could be crispy.

WHOA!@!
was it still warm when you bought it???
No throttle means just that, EVEN with a Melted T/Charger hose it WILL still rev up, (suprising that it runs at all is right, fire damage must be fairly limited ). Just check the BASICS, open bonnet/hood and eyeball throttle body with ign off through the gap between the bonnet/hood and see if it moves, (you can check WOT later...).
Go to the Wreckers/Auto Recyclers, pick up the appropriate Eng wiring loom and maybe some hoses, (if Required), and you MAY have bought a bargain!!

Cheers,

Sixpack Subaru
