ehh. still doesnt keep it to redline like bigger turbos.
But I just put in my vf52 (less than 800 miles) and I upgraded to a dw65c fuel pump. Im running around 320whp.
Id want to see paper work of where it was put in and what else has been done to the car. 65k miles is definitely good mileage but its hard to think that because of the upgraded turbo that the car hasnt been beat on. But an upgraded turbo is worth it because you dont have to worry about the vf40 blowing into your motor and you have obviously more power.
I would bring the car to a reputable subaru mechanic and test EVERYTHING. Go halfs on the cost of it (prob $100). I am paying dearly for my recent car purchase. In the 3 months ive owned it I had to replace the tires, rear brakes, turbo, and center diff...
Definitely make sure it checks out before you end up buying it.
Is it dealership or private sale. Got a link to it?
