Nice start on your Member Journal! :cool:

Looks like you need 5 more posts before you can link to a host. You can attach pictures, but using a picture hosting service is way easier. :wink:

Today I went down to P&L in Chicago to get my coilovers adjusted and to change exhausts. Turns out, my rear coilovers seized up sometime over the last few months. As a result of this, I have to go back and have the stock suspension put back on while the coilovers are sent back to Stance for rebuilding (Luckily under warranty).

On the positive side of things, I ended up going catless today with the P&L street series catback, and Catless TurboXS DP. It sounds amazing, and really brings out that deeper rumble sound. I was running the TurboXS TBE up until today.

Along with the exhaust I also got an AEM Wideband mounted on the pillar. It's nice to have there just to make sure my AFR stays normal.

I will post an update once I get the coilovers rebuilt...

(I have the TurboXS catback for sale now, PM me if interested.)

I already made comments on the "other forum", but I will say again that this is one extremely well modified Forester; very tastefully done. :icon_biggrin: the car truly is "illest". :biggrin:

If I could just one thing to your car, and only one thing, it would be to add the OEM rear spoiler to the trunk! And then, DONE!
