A reluctant sale of my 2004 Forester STI in Mica WR blue,
MOT: September 2019
I had her imported from Japan in September 2017 as a grade 4B by Torque GT, who did all the registration, MOT, full service, cambelt change, four new Uniroyal Rain sport tyres and complete under seal.
Since then the car has been remapped for UK fuel by Neil at Slowboy Racing at Brands Hatch and now the car has a significant increase in power and torque. Originally 265BHP she is now 321BHP and 350 lb/ft of torque, which makes for a very enjoyable drive.
Before the remap a new uprated fuel pump, 3-port boost solenoid, Cosworth panel filter, NKG Iridium heat 7 plugs, Syms Racing CAT and a rare Fujitsubo CAT back stainless exhaust system were fitted so the map is completely custom.
The exhaust gives a great sound without being too loud particularly on the motorway and being a forester specific one it fits perfectly and it will still pass an MOT.
Subaru really got the best of both worlds right with the Forester, lots of space, comfortable, fast and well handling.
This Forester also comes with the much sought after aero spats and winter pack, inside the original mats are in great condition and the spec-c front seats are not showing signs of wear.
Other work done on the car included brand new wing mirror gussets to help with the fabled 'Forester wind noise'
OEM Subaru rain deflectors
Rally Armor poly mud flaps
All four weather seals on the windows have been replaced
New door speakers
Pedders camber bolts
STI Group N front top mounts - with full geo
This year I have changed the power steering fluid, rear diff oil, gearbox oil and engine oil is change every 6 months only using JDM OEM oil filters.
Alloys have some very slight curbing and there are some stone chips you would expect with any car of this age.
Tyres are now a year old and have plenty of tread.
Lots of paperwork provided with the car, test drive will be conducted by me only.
