  1. New Member Introductions
    Hello! Happy to be here. It appears I am 24 hours away from joining your ranks as a Forester owner! Tomorrow morning, my 2007 Forester XT Sports in Obsidian Black Pearl with 5spd will be loaded on a truck and embark on a 2500mi journey to Miami FL for my forever enjoyment! I owned a rust bucket...
  2. Brakes
    I have a 2007 XT Sports 4EAT with the Vehicle Dynamic Control. I have the spongy pedal feel that most everyone on here has so I'm trying to replace the master cylinder, add a brace, and stainless steel lines. The problem is I simply cannot find the correct master cylinder. I talked to a...
  3. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Any thoughts? 2004 FXT 4eat with JDM EJ20x, won’t rev past around 3500 rpm in gear. Goes to redline in neutral and park. Fuel pressure is stuck at 20psi. Just changed the fuel filter, old one looked good. AFR is around 14 and goes all the way up to 18-21 while accelerating. Whole fuel system and...

    So I'm thinking about turbocharging my 05 forester, and it looks like everything I see on this page and elsewhere is about the XT, which I think has a different engine than the other models. Does everything cross over as far as what I should do for a turbo?
  5. Forester Shopping
    Hello, I want to buy a forester XT, however I only had found a few. The one that call my attention was a 2012 Touring with 108,000 miles. Everything looks good but there is a weird noise coming from the belt. The car is going for 8,995 and i just want to know any major repairs I should consider...
  6. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey guys! I have been a member here for a while. Most because my wife has a SH forester N/A. I bought a 14 SJ FXT and love it. I was wondering if there is as forum here or if anyone has done a 15+ wrx 6spd MT swap into the SJ. I saw the STI swap but was wondering if anyone has done this with the...

    I just bought what seems like a great condition 2005 FXT w/ manual trans with about 112k miles and am looking to get a good checklist of things to check before making it into a daily/weekend driver aiming for about 250HP. According to the records/CarFax; in 2018 the head gasket, timing belt...

    Hello all, I've been a member here since I bought my scoob back in '04 and it's finally time to say goodbye. My girl's still running, ish, but has gotten long in the tooth and has a couple of issues that I don't want to deal with. No, this isn't a midlife crisis...honest. I'd rather it go to a...

    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.
  16. FA20DIT - 2.0L Direct-Injection/Turbo (2014-2018)
    A buddy of mine has a Invidia N1 for sale from a 2015 WRX, but it's just the Axle-back portion. From my understanding since I seen many people on here and on YouTube slap the N1 onto the 2014 FXT I'm gotta take a wild swing I should be 100% okay as it's the same model and nothing really changed...

All major services are up to date and the last owner kept the interior very clean. My last car was a 2008 Lexus IS350 and before that a Volkswagen...
  18. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello all! I purchased a 2005 Forester XT a little over 2 weeks ago. The car has just over 120k. I purchased it from a dealer and the vehicle was sold “as-is” due to age. While test driving everything seemed fine. The car pulled as it should and didn’t have any notable sounds or smells. After...
