I've been looking around for one of these. Came across this one and the dealer didnt know if it was stock.
To me it looks like a aftermarket pulley and maybe that fill can??? Its out of state so doing some due diligence.
TIA

Stick intake, upper pulley, small hx tank is what I can see. Possibly flex fuel but hard to make out from that pic
I would poke fun at the Stick not Stock typo. LOL

But don't want anyone to take it the wrong way.

looks like someone really liked carbon fiber and shot their load all over the intake pipe.

Yup after market carbon engine cover or had the original wrapped, an upper pulley and most defiantly lower pulley and a Tune for max power output.

I would try to find out more about where it was previously tuned and modded to see if it was worked on by a reputable shop.

You could always try to use the fact that it is modded to get a better price, since you are taking on more risk with a modded car with a lot of unknowns.

Car was definitely modded and then some parts pulled (easy ones - intake is one) before it got turned/traded in. Take a look at the upper pulley and see if its marked (anything less than 2.5 is not a stock diameter). To get that aftermarket pulley on up top, blower had been opened up to make the swap. Could be ported at that time too but again, you won't know exactly. It could all be fine and good but do your diligence on having the dealer check the computer for a tune or that is had been tuned in general.
