ICP car parts are cracking company if you can understand their regional dialect . I was on the phone to them this morning …… spending.
Exhaust-find our what sort your has. Three piece or four. Get under it to find out. Subaru used what was lying around in the factory.
If three piece then the centre section is a classic Impreza length and will fit. If four piece then a new age shorter length.
Backbox will fit from an Impreza but will be recessed in behind the bumper and you might have to re weld one of the exhaust hangers. The backbox is pretty much universal so any forester specific one will fit.
I’ve got a Haywood and Scott mid section and backbox in 2.5 inch resonated flavour. It’s nice and subtle and makes a decent sound. Not too loud and not at all boomy on motorway speeds.

Thanks for the information . I dont suppose you have a video somewhere of your forester and its sound
Being new to Subaru and to Foresters i dont know what one to compare it to, Its an SG5 so 2 ltr , with Turbo, JDM model. Its suspension is slightly lower than standard. Seams to share a lot of parts with the Sti and the standard models. Lower BHP than sti.I don't know what a cross-sport is but an STI turbo rear muffler is not a straight bolt on for a non-turbo. The turbo muffler thick rod hangers at the rear of the muffler are lower. The exhaust pipe flange at the front is at a different angle and the steel rod support welded to the pipe is too short. (note that the pipe diameter is larger but the flange the same)
The two lower rear support rod problem can be overcome by buying two longer rubber hangers that hold the exhaust system in the middle of the car. They are a perfect match for the different height. An exhaust shop would either cut the pipe off your old muffler and weld it onto to turbo muffler. In this way the flange and support rod would not have to be changed. If not they would cut & rotate the flange and change the rod somehow.
