Default Purchasing used STi, Can I get extended warranty from Subaru?

My roomate is buying a STi, and one potential buy is a used one:

2004 Sti, 13,000 miles
mods:
B&B turboback
winter tires

He plans on putting the stock turboback back on though.

1) He was wondering if its still possible to purchase an extended warranty from Subaru?

2) He also told me that he wouldn't mod it except for a catback and bov (i already told him the negatives of a bov), and he wants to know if something like this would void his powertrain/tranny warranty in anyway?

3) Then again, the STi has a "bulletproof" drivetrain right, so he shouldn't need to worry about transmission problems?

1.) I am pretty sure you can.
2.) Your warranty can never be voided. They might deny claims if they can contribute failures to the mods.
3.) Bulletproof doesn't mean Idiotproof.

You can but they'll fight you tooth and nail if you've done anything to besides look at it.

2) But I mean honestly would they deny tranny failure due to a bov and catback? I know they can but would is key here.

3) My friend has been driving stick for a long time, even on an awd old truck and is very responsible, in other words no launches, clutch drops, etc. So would the tranny really uphold that "bulletproof" name so that he wouldn't need to go in for tranny failure?

Check out Unabomber's Manifesto, specifically the FAQ about BOVs.
I would think it *much* more likely that they would deny powertrain coverage due to the turboback. If the current owner has ever taken it in to a dealer, the turboback may already be recorded in Subaru's computer system.

I would think so, but with two caveats: 1) The current owner may have already damaged the tranny or other part of the car (why is he selling it, anyway?) through abuse, although that might not show up until after the sale. 2) The fact that your friend wants a BOV indicates he's not as responsible as you describe.

There is a dealer on the East Coast that will sell you the 7year 100k no deductible warranty for under $1900. You do have to take the car into your local dealer to get it "inspected/looked over". He is the cheapest anywhere. Believe me, I did my research. The dealer makes a lot of money off of the extended warranty, SOA has a set price and the dealer jacks it up. IM me if you need to.
