Yeah that was a pretty stupid statement LOL! yeah the New XT and the supercharged subie def are not gas mizers. Its so hard not to give it the beans and let er rip! I am now looking to create a cooler box for the AWIC reservoir/beer to help in the summer months. :grin2:
I have to make new spacers for the front skid plate to clear the header etc.

Actually, I still keep an eye on how quickly the tank needs to be refilled, just to make sure something has changed that needs to be investigated.

I like to feel the acceleration G's & I have a heavy right foot, so no tracking the miles per gallon for me!

Hey Bobby, any suggestions on motor/tranny mounts? Im getting way too much flex! The car is holding up wonderfully, it definitely is a low end beast! My sons asked me to get on it in front of the house when I was heading out to work. So i did a rolling take off and the front wheels came off the ground! hah! the look on all of our faces was priceless!

hey guys, Just an update. The Forester is still running like a top! No probs so far and Ive added a snorkel! i should be taking the car up to Asheville and getting a new clutch built to handle the torque . All improvements are goin toward the 05 FXT and improving the airflow and cooling. next will be the ground effects and wheels/tires. Funny but I guess my dive habits have changed and Im getting around 24 mpg with both the turbo 05 and the super charged 01.
