  1. Engine and Exhaust
    Ok, so I’m trying to install my new headers for my 2003 forester. The bolts holding the headers to the block come out just fine. But when I get to the catalytic converter all hell breaks loose, or in better words, doesn’t break loose. These damn bolts holding in the cat and around the heat...

    I have a 2020 Forester with 80k miles, previous owner did oil changes at 10k intervals miles two different times. I did not get a warranty.. I went to the dealer to have them take a look, and they said everything seemed fine. But now when I start my car in the morning, there seems to be...

    When I owned my old Impreza I had those $100 replica Borla UEL headers on it. They were actually really well made for being replica headers and I want to put some on my forester. The only issue is that I cannot find them for the life of me, all the ones I can find only ship to the USA.

    I have a catted Invidia J-pipe that I just took off my Forester that I want to sell. No problems with it, works great, just didn't want to deal with the hassle of emissions testing and swapping it out. Should fit any FA20 DIT, including the WRX...

  6. FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Referencing the video below, he gets an absurdly close rumble to uel header turbo years, are these specific foresters 2.5i Premium with the manual option uel headers? And another video with the same engine:

  9. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Hi guys I've seen on scooby world they sell a decat downpipe which I will be buying at some point. I just wanted to ask if anyone has installed this and if it is worth it. Will it pass MOT, I believe there is a 3rd cat near the turbo, so I'd imagine it's still legal as well. Also there are 2...
  10. Engine and Exhaust
    Hello. I have already chosen the nameless Exhaust with 5 inch mufflers. I need to replace the rusty mid-pipe and I’ve seen some people use a WRX mid-pipe. What year of WRX would fit my 2012 2.5X?
  11. Engine and Exhaust
    Hey guys, I'm wanting to get a bit more sound out of my car (2004 2.5X) without spending too much. I want to replace my rear muffler and leave the rest pretty standard (also don't want to get defected for being too loud) so I bought a blitz cannon on Facebook marketplace for a good deal and...

    Hey, I have an 02 XS would the attached exhaust system fit mine?
  13. Engine and Exhaust
    I was trying to find some information on this but it seems fairly scarce. I popped a code that my catalytic converter is failing/failed. So I was wondering what kind of exhaust system options I had. I'd like to upgrade and give my car a nice sound, but I'd like for the exhaust to also be...

    I have a base model 2002 with the 2.5L 4 cyl. I'm from VA and the ol' thing has really taken it from the road salts (its a rust bucket underneath). Here is the current situation I'm in, both of the catalytic converters have called it quits its thrown the cat specific codes (P0420) and as far as...
  15. Engine and Exhaust
    I couldn’t find a good install write up or tutorial for the forester specific Yonaka exhaust anywhere, so here I am. How the exhaust looks with spacer: You don’t need to run the spacer but I would strongly recommend it cause if you don’t, the tip will be under the bumper and melt it. The...
  16. Engine and Exhaust
    Hi there, I’m thinking about straight piping my JDM forester next week and I’m not too sure about one factor. The OEM exhaust diameter for my vehicle is 2”. I could just cut out my resonator and one cat and weld a 2” pipe in its place; or I could replace the whole mid pipe and axle back with 2...

  18. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hey guys! I am so stoked to finally be part of this community as my buddy just sold me his 2014 Forester 2.5i. I was thinking about doing some upgrades. He said it is "the basest of base models," and I was wondering if an aftermarket intake and exhaust would increase the HP or make the engine...

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo 2007 SILVER The rear cat is a-rattlin'! It perked my ears months ago but now it's getting rowdy. Needs replacing pronto! My question for the esteemed forum is this: Luckily the front cat is fine, no codes or warning lights, it's just the rear cat that's gotten clunky...
  20. Engine and Exhaust
    So I think it’s time that I go ahead and get a new exhaust system for my NA Forester. Because if I can’t have too much more power it might as well sound nice as well. I’m wondering if anyone has found any exhaust systems for the 2.0L NA foresters so I can compare with the quote I got for a full...
