After quick examination, I think this one comes a pearl lol

The engine seemed to have been replaced recently. looking through the oil cap, the head still shines, the vacuum pump looks brand new, and the turbo oil feel line is still shiny. took the spark plugs out and no water is inside the cylinders. I will check the timing chain to see if it is the new edition and the air filter just in case, I'll leave the plugs out and hand spin it first.

Few of the modules had some damage...FRM, JBE, MULF2, YAW sensor, and heated seats modules. I might also just replace the airbag module. I didnt check the TCM and the shifter but we'll find out once we get it started.

the car came without keys, so i bought virgin keys and will try to mate them with the CAS once they arrive.

stay tuned

Not having a key, makes things a little slow...In the meantime, I took the ECU/CAS/keyfob from an 09 MCS with a manual transmission I have. I used a fuse box I was using on the 08 N18 swap and I used an FRM that was from another car..lol with weak batteries and a dying jumper box, I got the car to crank only! I read the codes and one stood out was the fuel pump activation fault. I didnt hear the pump priming or turning so I will try to test it after I use the right fuse box which i got today.
I wish I can find the original owner and ask him/her to send me the keys there was no trace of documents inside the car.
