The Path of Obsession.........
About a year and a half ago, I walked into the local Subaru dealership to book a Legacy GT, but fell in luv with the FXT after a short test drive..........I told myself.........this is exactly the car that I want, a fun offroader & occasional track car all in one..........my wife said..........'keep it as it is....no mods.........'............:biggrin::biggrin:

perhaps I should've started this journal in Mar '07 coz I've changed bodykits, scoops, coilovers, turbos, tmics, sports rims & tires.........all in the span of just over one-and-a-half years....... better late than never I suppose.........

I'll post pics and write-ups of my current setup and over the weeks will add pics of the journey I took to get here.......and then add more as the ride evolves........this is a wonderful forum and I've gleaned much modding info & enjoyed tremendously the fantastic rides you guys have...........:icon_wink: I hope you'll find my journal interesting too.............

This is my forester as she looks now..........









This was how she used to look.........

I LOVE gadgets.........yes I'm a GEEK!! haha! I work in the car audio line and my amplifiers have built-in DSP which I can use tune with software......so I thought......why not include a Carputer to tune my amps and also tune my CAR!!

So the vision I had was.........crank it up and Viola! a 'GTR' type display shows up several parameters that I want to monitor and if I wanted to........I could pull over anywhere, adjust my ROM and reflash the ECU at anytime........

So in went the carputer, ICE and a Tactrix Openport 2.0 cable hooked up to the car's OBDII port. I'm still hunting for the perfect Skin but it's all coming together nicely...............:icon_wink:

The Command Center.........:icon_cool:





In-Car Entertainment and Carputer Setup........











Audio Tuning............

Wow, your car is hot! :icon_eek: Do you have a close-up of the emblem on your tailgate? It looks like the Forester "F" emblem in the Subaru oval badge. Is it custom-made? I've never seen one like that before.

something my friend and I thought up.....it's actually a black gloss sticker over the oem badge and then a laser cut chrome sticker over that for a little 3D effect and finally a clear sticker over the lot for protection.........someone asked me abt this so i put up some pics in this thread.........
