2019 GT

Hi everyone

Been browsing this forum as a non-member for 2 years.. and finally getting my car this week in sep 2023. It’s a 2019 GT model in black. The car is overall clean and I got a good deal as well, but I’m concerned about a few things. Firstly it was definitely modded, I can tell by the jb4 logo on the side and curb rashes on all 4 wheels (previous owner was having too much fun I guess) and also I heard a very loud whooshing noise while accelerating during test drive. My thought was it might be a turbo spool or the aftermarket intakes. So my question is what other mods do you think I need to look for and what reliability issues I might face in the long run because of the the mods. Honestly I’m not against mods, I probably would have done the intakes myself as my first mod. But I am just curious about other mods that might be present and can affect my extended warranty.
Thanks for reading. Looking forward to be a part of this family.

Welcome aboard, one of the more important mods is a Oil Catch Can on the PCV side of the motor. That will keep your manifold & the top of your valves from getting gummed up with oil. here's a photo of what I'm talking about.
