    Ah well lesson learned , least you didn’t jump in and regret it after.


    Not being pickey here but There’s a Few tell tail signs in that add . No mapper mentioned , no idea of power it’s running , Impreza super shift gearbox , fmic anodize black front mount intercooler ,Subaru alloys , etc etc


    All these little things point to someone who’s not well up on Subaru’s who’s probley chancing his arm with the high price . Don’t loose hope there are good cars out there it just takes time . But I think your going to have to buy a car that needs some work somewhere . That’s not a problem price depending

    We done work about 2 years ago.

    Alcatek ecu with anti lag and launch. Mapped via Racedynamix

    Anodised black core fmic. So thats correct.


    On a factory vf28.


    The shift thing was one of those short shifters that came with a number plaque. So not gearbox no.


    RCM induction kit.

    Cant remember full spec.

    But would have had uprated fuel pump so either walbro or rcm.

    May have done 3 port upgrade.


    So not sure how mean "tell tale" signs.

    Just owner doesnt know how to list the full spec.

    Wasn’t having a go at the car just the way it’s advertised (The cleanest example you will find in Ireland) is a big claim and then failing to list the important Parts of the spec just comes accross as some one who doesn’t know Subaru’s very well but can still make a claim like above .

    It down to 13k now so grab a bargin lads

    I would hesitant a guess the guy selling it bought it the way it is a while back, probably paid 8-10k, keeps it polished well and now thinks he has an opportunity to make a few quid. Doesn’t really know much about the car or the cars in general.. call me mystic Mac lol

    Looks like that ken but you can't blame a lad for trying . Market usually dictates what there worth
