Let me start this off my name is Dillon, i live in West Jordan Utah (SLC Suburb).
Enough about me and on to my car! It is aptly named "Forest" since he is kinda slow :lol:

As with most Subaru owners theres quite a little story behind our cars and im no exception! :banana: So i started looking for my first car last summer. at first i was looking at older 2.5rs imprezas thinking thats the only thing i wanted. but one day my mom told me she found an 01 forester for a ridiculous good price and that i should get it. at first i didnt exactly take to the idea of having a wagon let alone a forester, but the deal was good. an 01 with what i assume is limited trim the only option the car didnt have was a sun roof! the price was $3,500 157,xxxmiles new summer tires, winter tires, full 12 year service history every single oil change part replacement and detail service on record! to top it all off it was driven 3 times a week and graged parked at the ladys work and home! now the lady that owned this car was quite the charecter if i do say so! while i was test driving the car she was giving me an earful on how much she enjoyed the car and all the things she had done with it taking it on trips and such always taking care! she had me sold on it!so i ended up giving her 3,300 cash on the spot! i had been saving formy first car with all my birthday money and such since i was 10! overall great purchase! never looking back on it i love my Foz!

As soon as i got the car my mind was set to make the car my own! my first goal in mind was obtaining that signature boxer rumble! (yet to do lol) all ive done really is visual modding. but as im saving more and more for mods :woohoo: But ill try and keep my journal organized and up to date as much as possible:Banane37:

How it sits currently

Well I can get my hands on an 05 sti catback for 30$ but the mid pipe and axle back are seized together will this be a big problem? I know I'm going to rotate the flanges just not sure if that will pose as a big issue

Hey guys does anyone know how to give a 4eat trans a tune up or how to fix these little shift jolts I've been getting lately. The jolts aren't bad but I'd like it to shift smoother is all

Perrrrrfect. I got my STi catback for $40 and a sixxer. Jump on it and spend $50 to have an exhaust shop hang it for ya. Pick up some XL Kartboy hangers to do it right too.
