Thank you if you look at the third pic where then engine mounts to the bellhousing it seems to have some scoring. I’m not sure if that’s normal or if it was from someone jamming a screwdriver in there when (possibly) removing the engine.
Looks like there could be some minor scaring in the area but it looks factory to me.

64k miles
Looks more consistent with someone pulling that hose and used a flathead or something of the like to help pull it from the housing. The worm gear clamp seems out of place as if this hose was removed. I can't tell for sure but looks near the TMIC. Being that you have the HB STI it wasnt uncommon for people to go straight full bolt on with those cars so some things may have been moved around or returned to stock. I would start by looking in the places I mentioned above if you're really concerned. 64kmi is still pretty low so I wouldnt fall victim of the idea its on a new shortblock. Good luck with it!
