Smell of gas, is it stock? The down pipe should be the original one with the name subaru on the side that you could clearly read from the right side with the hood open

Did he/she say why the turbo and head gasket was replaced? Timing belt, water pump etc is good but head gasket and turbo?

It sounds like a decent car but I say keep looking but then again I don't know what to say as I'm not there. It's up to you but at least ask why those were replaced if you do decide to buy it
thanks for the quick reply, the car is completely stock. the owner said the car overheated 1 day and his mechanic said the head gasket was leaking, upon fixing that, they realized the turbo was going bad, so that was replaced too!

A place to start if nothing else.
Car is an automatic so i dont believe this applies.
