History
Purchased @205,XXX miles from PO in Pennsylvania on 2/28/18. Running a Cobb Accessport V2 stage 2 tune (stock turbo, stock intake, aftermarket turboback exhaust.) making 285 hp and 305 ft-lbs of torque. I drove it about 2 hours home and it ran great the whole way. This car is LOUD and sounds very aggressive. Headgaskets blew around 206,000 Mi causing the coolant system to get over-pressurized when in boost. The first sign was a blown out upper radiator hose which **** coolant all over the engine bay, upon inspection of hose there was a small hole which I figured was just wear and tear from being 14 years old. Second sign was coolant shooting out from under the radiatir cap all over the engine bay. Installed Mahle Complete Headgasket kit, Gates Timing belt kit w/water pump, STI Oil Pump, ARP 11mm Head Studs, Aluminium rear Oil Seperator Plate, and Rear Main Seal.
