Thanks for the info. I was asking because my brother has a 4EAT and wanted a different shifter for his car ('99 2.5 RS). If you were going to make the guide then I'd definitely take a look at it but if it's not on your to-do-list then you don't have to go through the trouble.

After ghetto rigging that I was able to bypass the key locking In the ignition and and having to use the brake to move the shifter.
Although its not entirely safe since I can move it from p to r,n,d without having to engage the brake, I do take caution and be extra careful not to bump it, I always make sure I press the brakes in as its second nature anyways.
Sorry if its not a very good explanation, I can make a guide tomorrow if I have some time if your interested.

I did a few things this week.
On Friday I installed my new mass airflow sensor.


Today I got my annual "roof rack Christmas lights" set up.


And finally, I got up the nerve to stick this little cutie in my rear window.

Today I tried to fix my wind noise issues but to no avail.....I stopped by my local Home Depot and picked up 3/8" OD x 1/4" ID x 20' of this same brand of tygon tubing.

Tried installing it like this....

Then went for a drive to the local GNC (one I prefer anyway) which happened to be about a 25min drive away. Hopped on the freeway and hit speeds of 60-80mph along the way. Initially I though I had a reduction in the amount of wind noise I have but then I realized I didn't really and it was still the same.

I wonder if my tubing choice as too large of an OD or if I didn't get it placed correctly (I have mine under the weatherstripping but not inside the track that holds the weatherstripping in place).....

Exclamation rearview camera for 2013 forester

installed an OEM rearview camera part# H001SSC700 which i bought from ebay for just $100 free shipping :) my first DIY! :) was so easy my forester which has HU #CP635U1 was already prewired!!

i am so happy because my dealer said they can not install a rearview camera since mine was 2013 model which has no navigation system and subaru of america also after i sent them the exact model and vin number of my foz they said its not possible. well they are wrong :)

thanks to all the topics here regarding rearview cameras it helped a lot most specially to tomriv for answering my questions! and to joe spitz for emailing me back with answers and thanks to his website Subaru Research Site- specs, prices, options, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009.. Outback, Legacy, Forester, WRX, STI, Impreza, Tribeca, BRZ, XV Crosstrek so detailed regarding subaru specs so detailed its better than getting info from subaru's own websites

sorry me no good speak english :shake:

You need to contact soa and the dealers I spoke with and include pics. This may help other 13 and above Forester owners.

YESTERDAY we decorated my Fozzie and drove it halfway around our island (250km) to wed and bring home my beautiful bride :D

Yes this post was just me bragging about my wedding but you can't deny the Fozzie looked good all dresed up for my wedding:

Hand Spliced a new Tow Rope.



16mm Polypropylene, the ropes break strength should be around 2.5 tonne, derated a bit for the splice (which should be less than 10% reduction in strength) and it should be good for at least 2 Tonnes - so its stronger than the old Tow Strap it is replacing (although the strap was much smaller when folded up)

the best bit is - if i trash it, i can easily build another one, and the rope cost me $15

the first time i have spliced anything, and it is pretty easy providing you follow the directions (and is also why i have derated the strength quite a bit more than usual

Subaru - its all we'll drive
