  1. Sourcing Parts & Accessories
    I’m sure everyone loves rare parts, but digging too deep and dropping a pretty penny is even more fun imo. Everyone should drop their favorite score or what rare piece you’re looking for! i just got these tail lights and i can’t wait to install them! Also hoping to score a garnish one day.
  2. Exterior and Body
    would the sti fog covers fit on a typical sf bumper?
  3. Exterior and Body
    Will an 03 forester hatch fit on a 98-02 forester? I got a new bumper but the license plate area is meant for German plates so it's long and skinny, compared to the US plate size. So I was wondering if the hatch will fit so I can put my plate on the hatch or I'd have to figure out a different...
  4. EJ20 - 2.0L Turbocharged
    Hi everyone! I recently bought my first Forester, and I'm absolutely loving it - But now that i have driven it for a couple of months, I'm starting wanting more power (As you do). So I was hoping to get some help from you guys, getting past 300hp. I've already bought a used Impreza 3' turboback...
  5. Lighting and Electrical
    Can anyone good with car electrics verify if I correctly isolated the issue down to the switch? When I pull the "mist" lever the wipers wipe once but no fluid comes out. The wiper fluid comes out just fine when I push the regular wiper button on the side of that lever, and it used to work.. I...
  6. Parts Wanted
    Hey guys, just picked up one of these H7110AS011 Keyless Entry units from ebay, (like this: Subaru Keyless Entry Control Unit H7110AS011 Module oem ECU | eBay) only to find out that it doesn't include the harness. I can't find this stinking thing anywhere, if anyone knows of one I'd love to...
  7. Transmission and Driveline
    I am such an idiot.... I recently changed out my shifter linkage bushings on my SF5. Everything was great until tonight, when with a sudden thud I was completely unable to get into any gears except for first. Only swapped out the shifter bushings last week, and sure enough I must have forgotten...
  8. Lighting and Electrical
    Hey guys, installing the legendary compass pack & I need to extend the "speed sensing" wire a bit so i was hoping to pick up some crimps & wire of the exact same stuff to keep things uniform. Here's a pic of the wire I'm talking about, it's not the exact wire but all of these seem to be the same...
  9. Lighting and Electrical
    Hey guys, I have a bunch of electronic stuff to install on my 99 SF5 and I figure while I'm doing this I might as well upgrade the grounding system, which I can tell isn't the best from the way the headlights dim when electronics are used. I've seen a lot of threads here but nobody is really...
  10. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, I'd like to start off by saying I'm an 18 y/o college student with hand tools and no fancy tools, I do all the work by myself because I have to. So before you say take it to a dealership, please understand I may not be able to, I'm broke as hell. Skip to (***) for the problem. Last...
  11. Parts Wanted
    Looking for one of these bad boys, I see one on ebay but it's $100.. Might just hit up a pick and pull if not but I thought I'd check here. I don't think any other module is compatible with these but if anybody knows that for sure, that knowledge would be highly appreciated as these ones seem...
  12. Transmission and Driveline
    This is probably a dumb question but will the passenger side (left side) CV axle be the same as the driver side of a USDM model? Or will it be flipped? I noticed while changing my oil that the inner CV boot is torn, so I figured I'd replace the whole axle instead of dealing with re-packing a...

    Hey guys, super excited to finally be a Subaru owner! Found a recently imported 01' SF5 w/ 24 000 kms...! Thought it was too good to be true but the car is in fantastic shape. The engine/other mechanical components are in great shape and the interior is immaculate! The exterior paint isn't the...

  16. Suspension and Handling
    I have a 1999 Subaru Forester L 5spd M/T. Which currently sitting on BC Racing coilovers BR series. A couple weeks ago I decided to lower the car more than it was already but I don’t like the gap in between the tire and fender. Just a couple days ago I got some new tires and noticed that my...
  17. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello all, This past week I installed coilovers and new calipers/pads/rotors all around. The coils are Megan Racing wrx wagon coils and I removed the sub frame spacers to fix the suspension geometry. I don't believe this to be the problem but I fell that its necessary to mention as I did not...

  20. Interior and Electronics
    I bought my first forester and I would like to install a kill switch between the computer and fuel pump relay, as a cheap anti-theft system. But i'm not sure where I can find the relay, what it looks like and which wire I should cut to connect the switch. It would be much appreciated if someone...
