Hey my name is Nate. I currently don' t have a forester yet, but am doing everything humanly possible to get one, Selling truck and fixing my honda to sell. I love this forum and all the cool things that all of you guys have done to your cars. I recently saw a pic of a slammed forester and fell in love. Which lead me to here. Ok so now the questions. I want to buy a forester. I want a 2.5 XT. I didn't realize with a little time, oem sti parts and very little money they can be as quick as a factory sti. Which years are the best for switching over wrx or sti parts. I've done some net surfing and found that the 04's seem to be the best for swapping out wrx wagon springs and sti oem turbo and fuel system parts. I just wanted to pick your guys brains and see what you guys thought. thanks alot!
