Showcase cover image for My 2011 FXT Touring

General Information

Satin White Pearl
XT Touring Plus
My second Forester was purchased with 71K on the ODO. I picked the Foz up in Key Largo, Florida. The car accumulated all miles in South Carolina and Florida so no road salt exposure. Taken to Stage 2 + within 500 miles of purchase.
After selling my stage 3 STI swapped 2005 Forester XT to help fund and facilitate the move from Missoula, Montana, to Orlando, Florida, I spent a few months daily driving my wife's 2014 Outback 2.5i. Missing the boat on a few WRXs and STIs, getting priced out of manual FXTs, and disgust for the Outback led me to caving on a relatively low mile 2011 FXT. Without doing any more research (I didn't even know that the car was Touring trim or what that included) than looking at the very clean Carfax and detailed photos of the vehicle, I haggled with the salesperson and picked up what has been the cleanest used Subaru I have owned yet.
Stock EJ255 engine bit the dust 6/2022 with 93k on the clock. The car went to Circuit Motorsports in Orlando for a new RA shortblock, ARP head studs, angled and resurfaced D25 heads, 100mm head gasket, new VF52, new IAG oiling components and all new OEM timing components. Engine was broken in and Dyno tuned by RogueArt Tuning and put down 303whp and 305wtq. The car is done for now.
