Modifications

Drivetrain
- Update on build:
- Mishimoto top mount, trying to install Mishimoto inlet pipe, GFB bov, Mishimoto short ram, Mishimoto radiator with Mishimoto pipes, off brand catch can, STP turbo heat shield, also Mishimoto radiator stays, Mishimoto turbo inlet pipe, off brand alternator cover, will be adding a TMIC water spray system
Interior
- 9” android touch screen, leather heated seats, moon roof, dual pod gauge cluster cover with off brand boost gauge and transmission temp. Gauge, COBB access port
Exterior
- Stock in terms of aesthetics. Did have a roof rack but removed due to the fact I’m not using it(not one of those guys), Hella horns on the way.
Audio
- One 12 kenwood sub with build in amp that I constructed myself, stock speakers and tweeters
Lighting
- LEDs for highs and lows/running light, 2 stage strobe on spoiler light and LEDs for brake/running lights, replace the stock rear reflecters with LEDs and linked them to my brake lights
Exhaust
- Full 3” turbo back, Invidia downpipe, off brand catback with 4” mufflers(looks good not riced out), stock headers and up pipe for now (have off brand in garage but too lazy to put them on), I am getting a grim speed open dump up pipe with 44mm Tial wastegate sometime soon
Wheel and Tire
- Off brand 17” with 38mm off set, tires are Toyo Extenza HP 2s but Toyo proxy 4’s are on the way, this isn’t wheels and tires but I do have Whiteline front and rear sway bars with polyurethane bushings(rear is 3 stage adjustable), front and rear Whiteline endlinks(also fully adjustable), SuperPro rear toe arms(again...fully adjustable), on off brand coilovers but CXR coilovers are on the way with 32 way adjustable dampers, front Brembo calipers from a 2013 Cadillac ATS with adapter brackets from CTSVBRAKESWAP.COM, Stop-Tech pads and drilled and slotted rotors.

How hard was it to install the android 9"? I just bought a 2009 X, and would like to start down the same path of sprucing it up. Thanks - nice work you';ve done. -David.

Very easy actually, just make sure you have the right one with the current harness, if not then you’ll have have to do a lot of splicing. I’ll drop the name you can look it up on eBay “9" Quad-core Head Unit Car GPS BT Android Radio Stereo For 08-12 Subaru Forester“
It was pretty cheap and it works really well
