  2. Motor Conversions
    I am in the process of doing an engine swap in my 06 FX NA. The engine going in is an 03 EJ251 so the pan won't clear the cats on the 06. My solution is the ebay uel header because subie rumble, lol. What my issue is, my old car that I'm taking parts from has bad cats. I need to use the front...

    Hi, I wanted to put this out into the forum and see if I could get some help. I have a '08 non-turbo with about 165k that I got from my mom a few years back. She got into a pretty decent driver's side fender/t-bone accident but it was fixed and drives well since, although some minor things may...

  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Hi All, Late this afternoon the exhaust arrived, so this evening we’ve removed the old unit successfully. Starting the install we’ve ran into a slight problem attaching at the turbo end, the original nuts have large flange and with the intake being larger we are struggling to get one on. What...
  8. FA20DIT - 2.0L Direct-Injection/Turbo (2014-2018)
    Hi Everyone, About 1000 miles ago I put Subispeed axleback muffler deletes on my 2018 XT. Look great but the sound is not what I was looking for. More specifically, the drone at about 1700-2000RPMs or so is too much for me. Everything else is stock regarding the exhaust. Would hate to go back...
  9. Engine and Exhaust
    Hi guys, just brought home my '06 Forester and I've learnt so much from this awesome forum already. I want a nice quiet exhaust something like the q300 but they don't make one for the SG. So I wanted to know if I could use Invidia's exhaust extension adapter so that I could maybe get proper...
  10. FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Just to let you guys know I placed a Dual exhaust from Invidia on my 17 2.5. It states for XT 2.0 but it fits fine on the 2.5. Just need the hangers hung on the left side from an exhaust shop. It sounds great. Can get a lot of drone on the interior cabin though. Not much change at all on...
  11. 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...
  12. New Member Introductions
    I picked up a 2014 Forester XT a few weeks ago. This is my second Subaru (coming from a n/a 5th gen legacy) I’m loving this thing. I’ve already picked up a set of aftermarket taillights and I’m starting to black out all the chrome. I want to get an axleback or cat back exhaust soon and I’m...
  13. Engine and Exhaust
    So, I'm wanting my 2017 Forester XT to have a deep rumble to it and I hear from other that replacing my stock exhaust would take away the low end torque on the car. And I don't want to remove that. So, I'm wondering if getting a WRX mid-pipe or Cobb's WRX J-Resonated mid-pipe and j-pipe, but...

  17. Engine and Exhaust
    Everybody sells the bolts for the converter-to-resonator pipe flange, but the rear set of bolts are tough to track down. After extensive searching, I finally found a site that sells what appears to be the right parts, but they want $10 to ship them! Does anyone know the correct sizes for those...

    Hey all, Just curious as to whether or not an 08 WRX Cat-less Up-pipe will fit to my 05 FXT? If not what years/models have a catless up-pipe I can steal from and replace my catted one that will be more or less a direct bolt on? Cheers Fozzy Gang
