  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello all, been searching the forums and can’t quite find anything like what I have going on. Just did the clutch on my 06 FXT and the shifter is Insanely stiff and feels like an arm workout just to shift from 1-2-3. Also 3 doesn’t feel like it wants to full engage. I had no problems with the...

  3. Motor Conversions
    I'd like to completely swap a 2009-14 WRX engine and drivetrain into my 2011 NA 5MT SH Forester. I'd like to ask if there is anyone who can help me fill in the gaps in my research and knowledge. My brother is a body guy with auction access, and since WRX drivers basically spent half their time...
  4. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey, I recently purchased a 2011 Forester with the 5speed manual and 187k. I've put about 1100 miles and today I shift out of 4th into neutral to come to a stop, as I take the clutch out it feels like the gear is still engaged. I put the stick in and out of gear again and let the clutch out and...
  5. What's My Foz Worth?
    Mileage: 169,800 at time of posting Why I am thinking about selling: want a new car and want to do less project work because I am getting much busier in my life. I put a TON of TLC into this. This is a Texas Foz, so, NO RUST. I have tried to keep the mods very low-key, closer to stock, and...

  7. Transmission and Driveline
    I am such an idiot.... I recently changed out my shifter linkage bushings on my SF5. Everything was great until tonight, when with a sudden thud I was completely unable to get into any gears except for first. Only swapped out the shifter bushings last week, and sure enough I must have forgotten...
  8. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey guys, looking to do the bushings & linkage to fix up some sloppiness in my 99 SF5 that has a 5mt trans from a 2007 Impreza. Watching some youtube videos on this process i see some of the guys talking about a "neutral return pin" and making sure to install them as they often go missing... So...
  9. Transmission and Driveline
    Hi, I am in the process of replacing the whole drivetrain of my car. I am looking for a EJ25 but following another discussion here, I was convinced I am best served (I need torque to compensate for the loss of compression at high altitude) to have a dual-range transmission. A local guy is...
  10. Transmission and Driveline
    Greetings, new member here. 😊 I apologise in advance as I am sure there are a thousand threads about this already but after a search I couldn't quite find what I was looking for. My story: I intend to swap the 4AT in my 99 Forester GT to a 5MT. My issue: I've read that any EJ series engine...
  11. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey everyone, kinda stumped on this one. My wife’s car, 2002 Subaru Forester 5MT with almost 300k, clutch done about 2k ago. Yesterday she pulled into the driveway and parked her car after driving a half an hour. She left the car in first with the parking brake on when she left. After sitting...
