Buying a Subaru wrx 2007 modded

Asked by Dean May 16, 2017 at 11:17 AM about the 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX Base

Question type: Car Customization

I'm looking at buying a wrx, but it has
about 22,000 dollars into it, it has a little
less than 60,000 original miles, and the
modifications only include a bunch of stuff,
but has stock block, so pistons and all that
hasn't been touched, but at 46,000 miles it
had a tune for 18lbs of boost, it was
pushing like 360hp, and 22lbs for 400hp,
now is that rough on a stock 2007 wrx
engine? Also has jdm 6speed

Just turn around and RUN. everything you have mentioned has greatly shortened the life of this engine, when stuff like this is done your expecting any life out of the engine.


If you have it checked out and it is really cheap you might get few thrills before it explodes. ;)

Its about at max performance for the tranny and stock internals on the motor. If tuned right it should hit 50k mikes and if you stick to the 18# boost setting you will increase that mileage by a bit. A big turbo is easier on the motor so you may hit 100k before a rebuild.
