  1. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    I'm looking to figure out a way to get that sound in my 2.5X. I've seen that the sound is sometimes achieved with an intake system, and from what I've read up on, the only intake system that'll work in an EJ251 is one for a 99-04 Impreza 2.5RS (as long as it's MAF compatible).

    Quick and dirty: Bought Forester in no start condition. Turns out belt stripped and caused some interference. Stock engine is EJ251 with EGR. Bought EJ253 replacement longblock.

    Hi all, I have an 03 Forester 2.5X with a 5-speed. The heads are going, it's got 167k on the clock, and there is no AC. There's an opportunity to buy a totaled 04 Forester 2.5XS auto with 12k miles on it. Not my first time pulling a motor but definitely the first time with a forester. What...
