  1. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Hello, I'm the owner of a Subaru Outback 2.0 turbo diesel. When I bought the car had 93k km and now has almost 115k km. I didn't have any issue, it works good, from my point of view, all the changes I have done were at the Subaru dealer. My question is regarding the engine, which I know that...

    I am planning an EE20 swap in my 2008 FXT. Has anybody done this before? I have seen some posts about swapping EE20s into imprezas and other models but nothing with the foresters. This is going to be one small portion of my build but i am hoping it wont be the most difficult one.
