So i took the b5 to my localish b5 guy who gave it a very thorough inpsection and these were his findings:
Car is in excellent condition and was very well cared for.
All bushings and bearings are in great shape
It has a few CELS dhe to the MAF not getting power and the 02 sensors are funky as well, neither issue can be fixed by simply throwing new sensors in. May be addressed with a later year ECU and replacing the MAF housing and sensor with the updated one and a new tune can disable the rear 02s entirely. This can be done when i get larger injectors, in tank fuel pump and wish to tune the car to something like 450 whp.
Minor seepage from oil pan
Very minor seepage from rear cam adjuster or sensor, neither leak worth addressing at this time.
