  1. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Hey so I’m a fairly new subie owner, and I’ve been looking for some more power in my not so speedy automatic non-turbo’d 2.5L 06’ Forester. Cold air intake is where I’d like to start, and exhaust after that. After looking for hours, I can’t find any CAI’s that will fit with the non-turbo? Did...

  3. Brakes
    I was driving my 2001 forester through the canyons two days ago, hit about 50 mph at absolute most: about 10 minutes in, the steering wheel and car would heavily shake when I would start to brake. This happened about 5 times. Once I got on the freeway, I no longer had the issue, and haven't had...

  7. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi! I had 3 occasions where I had trouble filling her up, which was annoying. Could only get about .5 of a gallon in before the pump clicked off. I dropped home, popped the filler neck off, and it was pristine, looked almost new (It's not). I cleared all the hoses at the neck, made sure it...

    Am going to have to link this to a YouTube Video which, sorry for sending you off-site I am trying to identify an issue and, ideally, fix it - for some time, probably after the first ten-to-fifteen thousand miles, my Forester has been making this really faint but truly frustrating ticking...

    I may just be bad at searching things out, but I did scour several forums for info on this before asking. With that out of the way, I picked up a mint 2010 Forester XT Limited with a blown engine and I'm having a hell of a time finding a complete EJ255 to purchase. Ebay is flooded with EJ20X...

  13. Lighting and Electrical
    I have a 1998 Subaru Forester that I bought as a project. I realized that the headlights, dash, and rear lights don’t work. The parking switch on top of steering wheel keeps the lights on so I’ve been using that for the brakes at night but the headlights don’t work either way. I have replaced...

  19. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Just became an owner of a 2001 forester, it's not in the best condition, but the full damage is still being tested. It runs and drives well, but I can tell the air engine is running poorly. Noticed this outlet on my air filter box and started researching. So far, I think this is an Intake Air...
