Thank you for the replies :)
I spent a few hours searching, ended up getting an RCA to mini cord and that worked, but I have no way to control the ipod from my radio or steering wheel. I think that Subaru has a kit of some sort. I will go ask them today when I pick up my Snowboard rack :)

I really want to get the Navigation hack done, but I am terrible with wiring.

You're welcome phantomfozzy; and thank you for the food and drink!

Too bad the Cobb AP Has 2 different V2's.

Don't forget, I like your Suspen. setup Please give me part numbers for swifts and struts off the box, and where you got your bushings done.

Suspension was Swifts, which can be ordered through Mann Engineering
Suspension, Chassis and Motor Oil Sales!

and KYB GR-2 (Excel-G) which I got through Rock Auto, though the price appears to have increased.
I believe the part numbers are:
334370 front right
334371 front left
334344 rear right
334345 rear left

The bushings I did on the 7 wouldn't apply to the fozz, but the shop that did them was A-Spec tuning in Schaumburg. I think they do work on Subarus but I've never looked for a full bushing kit. If you were asking about the Rallitek transmission insert, that's here:

Hondabrite

phantomfozzy, When you want to clean that motor up, U can use this: $7.99 Biodegradable Hondabrite,

Hondabrite - Bernardi Honda Parts and Accessories
Also sold at some motorcycle shops.

Then, if necessary, to re-black the plastics, steal the Lemon Pledge from your wife's furniture polish stash.
... her toothbrush can get into those tight spaces. But make sure you clean it with Hondabrite before you put it back. Makes a Nice!

tire pressure

hi! im from maplewood ave i just want to ask what tire pressure you guys use in this cold weather now in chicago, got a new 2013 forester non turbo and average mpg is just 14 all city driving i've read some threads here that one way to imrove mpg is to use higher pressure but i want to make sure that the good traction and handling would still be the same, this is my first car ever very happy with it so far except for the mpg but if it means more traction and safer handling in this cold weather in chicago then it's ok i guess to sacrifice mpg :)

Tire pressures should all be listed on a metal panel in the driver door well.

Though if you bought it new you shouldn't have a problem. That mileage is worse than I've ever gotten with a turbo and a loud pedal addiction.

I was getting gas in Wheaton last night, and saw a silver Forester. Probably had wheels, definitely had an aftermarket exhaust. Would have given chase, but you were gone before I finished.
