Well, if you were to return the car to stock wouldn't you have to buy a new OEM turbo to replace the '05 STI Turbo (VF39?)? As well as an OEM IC, and intake? Or did the original owner give all of that to you with the exhaust?

And since you don't know how to do it yourself you're probably going to have to pay at least $300-400 in labor to get all of that taken off and put back to stock.

If you have to buy new (or used) OEM equipment to replace what you're taking off I doubt you'd be making any money from it. At least not likely enough to make it worth your while. All of the parts have been on there for at least 6-7 years, so getting top dollar for them is very unlikely.

A 2007 WRX TR in decent condition with a reasonable price tag should sell incredibly quickly in a private sale. I'd look into that first before castrating yourself by selling a used car to a dealer.
