Default CEL Problem - Need ADVICE!

I bought my 2003 WRX about a week ago from a SMALL dealer in Hawthorne. After driving it out from the lot for about 30 miles, the CEL came on. So, I called my dealer about the problem and brought it back to him to fix. He made me wait an entire day and said that he turned off the CEL for the time being but he could not determine the cause of the problem till the CEL comes on again.

So I told him to run it for a day and fix the problem that was causing the CEL came on. Apparently, he did not want to bring it into a Subaru dealer because they could not honor the warranty due to the mods in my car and wanted to charge. I collected the car today, the dealer told me he cleaned some contact points, and he ran the car for 30 miles (this is true because I noted the odometer) and the CEL was off when I collected it. So off I went out of the lot with the car, and after about 40 miles the CEL came back on...

Brought it to Autozone, there were 3 error codes:

P0244 - Turbo Solenoid Wastegate A/Range Performance
P0546 - EGT Sensor High Bank 1 Sensor 1
P0546 - EGT Sensor High Bank 1 Sensor 1

From what ppl have been telling me, it has been heavily modified. Pics below:

Can anyone recommend me a good place to go to get the engine condition evaluated and have the mods documented in the OC or LA area? Would appreciate any advice..
