  1. Transmission and Driveline
    So I was driving normally down 35mph roads, not stressing the car or driving it hard at all, when I came to a stoplight. When it turned green & I shifted from first to second I noticed it suddenly felt different - it feels like 2nd is 'lower' than it usually is as in it needs sort of pushed down...
  2. Motor Conversions
    I have now a 201 but due to the lost horses over the years I’m looking for an power increase, and have found a 251 locally for a good price. Has anyone done a swap from a ej201 to an ej251? Is it hard or easy or not worth doing? Foz is used for all things, driving, hauling, light to mid...
  3. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I got an obd reader and it threw me a po13e code not sure what to do so I dont waste too much money trying to asses/fix. I was driving on a little road trip and about 3 hrs in the cruise control stopped working, no flashes just wouldnt set just, kept disengaging like I was tapping the brake or...

    i got some ongoing issues with my 03 na ej25 manual foz. got an idle of 600ish, but when pulling up to lights it will drop down to even 200 sometimes. Usually when hot.

  5. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    I am looking to improve the performance and sound of my diesel forester but not sure where to start. Have heard that exhaust upgrades don’t exactly do too much for these which is kinda sad but any recommendations on what I could do would be awesome. Any way that I can make a turbo diesel get...
  6. Engine Management, Tuning and Datalogging
    I just finished my remote tuning experience with Mike @rallisport Automotive and I am beyond impressed. The ecu in the SJ Forester may have been "optimized" for a CVT transmission but is frustratingly bad when paired with a manual transmission. I was not expecting significant power gains but...
  7. Transmission and Driveline
    Howdy there! Firstly I want to say I've been searching multiple channels to find info but no dice! I recently bought a 2010 Forester X with the five-speed manual. Overall the car has been very well maintained and is in quite good condition considering what I paid for it. However, it does have...
  8. Motor Conversions
    Hello, I have just recently purchased a 2007 Subaru Forester with a N/A ej 253 and was wondering what kind of modifications could be done to the engine or the car. I have been reading around and heard of a raptor supercharger, but I cannot find a place to purchase one. I am really just wondering...
  9. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    I have a 2009 2.5x subaru forester manual and I want to get a low mile used engine for it. I wanted to know what other years I could put into it without any modifications. The used 2009 engines from JDM are expensive relatine to 2010s.Thanks!
  10. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    I bought a 2005 Forester xs manual with a rebuilt motor and after owning it for a couple weeks suddenly starting burning oil and through a code for running rich. Might need a new motor if it wasn't done correctly . Just wondering what motors to look for that would work with the ecu and harness
  11. Transmission and Driveline
    So eventually down the line I'm looking to swap my CVT to a manual. While this is a way away I do like everything about my 2017 premium the price difference between an out of warranty CVT and a manual to be a big factor in my thought process. My question is: How difficult would it be? Being that...

    Hello guys! This is Benjamin, as you can see i am one of you guys! A Subaru Owner! I drive a Subaru Forester SH5 (2008) Manual and i love it every way! Few days ago, due to worn out clutch disc and broken clutch plate i had to replace them with the help of my dad. Everything seemed fine but...
  13. EJ20 - 2.0L Turbocharged
    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and I'm really enjoying the wealth of information that's on offer. I'm very hopefully soon to be the proud owner of a JDM 2002 2.0L XT, RH drive manual 5 speed. I'm already thinking of mods (yes, I'm running before I can walk!) I've got my eye on some WRX 5 spoke...
  14. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey guys. I have had trouble finding anything like this so here I am. Most wI'll know that the LO range isn't all that low. I was trying to find if anyone had increased the gear reduction and what parts they used or If there is some kind of kit. Thanks

    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...
  16. Forester Shopping
    Hey guys, I’ve been in the market for a new (to me) car and stumbled upon a 2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X Manual with 106-107k miles. It’s listed for $5,500 and the owner says that he’s already replaced the water pump, timing belt, and the head gaskets which covers most of the problem that I’ve seen...
