  1. Transmission and Driveline
    Regarding the addition of an external transmission cooler to a 2019 Forester, I'm sure that many people just unplug one hose from the stock heat exchanger and barb it to a longer piece of 3/8" hose, then out to the radiator area & then back again with another hose. Has anyone used a steel...
  2. Lighting and Electrical
    Hello all, I recently installed a set of diode dynamics SS3 Pro Type A fog lights on my 2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i. Boy oh boy was it difficult. Not only did Subaru not include any fog light housing for my car, but there was no switch in the dashboard or relay in the car for the lights. I went...
  3. Towing and Hauling
    I'm kicking myself for not having a hitch put on my 2020 Forester Premium when I bought it, and now would like to get one for light towing but mostly to hold a bike rack. I assume that can be done aftermarket. Are there brands/models you'd recommend? Is this something I can do myself (screwing...
  4. Motor Conversions
    Hey guys I am I recently picked up an 05 Forester XL LLBean and I love it, but I do wish it had a little more power. So I’ve been shopping around for a good turbo kit for the little 2.5 eng, and I seeing that there are a lot of options out there so I wanted to see if anyone on here had any...
  5. Suspension and Handling
    As the title states, I'm currently looking to replace my rear wheel hub assembly. Sadly, i need to change it just 50k kms on my car (31k Miles) So what's available here in my country as far as my research goes are NTN brand or the OE (NTN = $50~ vs. OE = $120) Carico is also available but I dont...
  6. Utility and Protection
    Hi, so I’ve showered all of google and Oem Subaru sites. Does anyone know an aftermarket brand or oem site that sell a bug deflector / hood protector for the 1st gen 98-00 or am I out of luck? I’m in search of one for my 99. Would the 01-02 version fit on my 99 or the mounting too different...
  7. Towing and Hauling
    So I had the OEM 1.25" hitch installed, but now am looking to carry a sturdier bike rack and they all need a 2" hitch. Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket 2" hitch that is compatible with the OEM hitch's bumper cutout? I wouldn't want to have a big gap there, or replace the bumper. Cheers!
  8. Towing and Hauling
    Just purchased an 18 forester. I'm looking at adding a few mods to the vehicle. Planning on adding a trailer hitch (2 inch curt) and looking to add crossbars. Does anyone have a recommendation regarding the 2 inch hitch or general recommendations for crossbars (OEM or aftermarket)
  9. Engine and Exhaust
    I've recently been looking into buying a new exhaust system for my non turbo forester and I saw a video of a guy installing a forester XT axle back exhaust on his non turbo forester. So I know that the axle back is a direct mount, but I'm looking to buy a cat back (the one pictured). All I...
  10. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Just had to replace my sump as a previously fitted magnetic sump plug stripped the threads when it was being removed by Subaru. Apparently this was due to the plug being made of a tougher alloy than the rest of the sump. If anyone is looking at installing one of the metallic plugs this is...
