Default From the Philippines

Hi guys!

I'm sunset from the Philippines. I just bought an 03 Subaru Forester in replacement to my JDM Subaru Legacy GT.

Hoping to learn valuable information here regarding how to properly modify and maintain my Forester.

Thanks!

Ciao!

I travel extensively in Asia. One thing I noticed is that many car owners there let the mechanics jam the thermostats in the always open position. They believe a cold engine is better. DO NOT let them do this. Make sure the thermostat opens at 170F like it was designed to do!
