it's a rs tranny, I'm sure a clutch upgrade will be in the near future, it's got no codes, but they are letting me bring my scanner so I can see if they deleted something but it's still stores in memory and I was told I would be given the phone number of the seller so I can get more info on the car.

yeah the dealer faxed me over the swap paperwork, the engine is from a 2004 sti with 21,000 miles on it when it was done so i think the guy drove it arond for a bit and traded it in for an audi I think the guys said.

if you buy it first thing to do is take off the horrible new age spoiler that does not belong on there and replace it with a v5/6 wing. sheesh that thing is huge and ugly.

if everything checks out buy it. 10g for a low mile sti swapped rs......insanely good deal

well here's the thing and that's why I'm going back during the day to look at the engine, the intake manifold is not red (1st sign it is not a STI engine) but I have 2 questions, since I couldn't make out the engine code on the receipt the old owner faxed me over.... I need 2 things from you guys, where on the block is the code/VIN located (it's been a while since i have actually seen these boxers) also, is there an easy way to check which turbo it is I know the stock 04-06 STI's came with a VF39 and the 07 came with the VF43 turbo, it's kinda crammed under from what I have seen so can i just look at the turbo inlet side and see it with good light?

well still doesn't answer my question, where's the engine code located on the block? I'm sure i'll be able to get the price down quite a few now, or call the better business buro
for false advertising, and i actually need to show the dealer this...
