Been with Subaru’s for quite awhile now, (just recently built a 1997 Impreza Outback Sport battle wagon) and I’ve always had my eye on a Forester XT. Well I was going through the classifieds and found an 05 FXT Manual about 3hrs out and was able to snag it. Interior and body are in great condition but the mileage was a little high but for the price, it was a steal. Already doing all the important service on it (timing belt, WP, TS, fluids, seals, gaskets etc) but what I really need help is some info making this thing a 300hp + beast!

I’ve been doing quite a bit of research and got the idea for all the bolt on and fuel upgrades I’m going to do but the one thing I’m trying to figure out is which turbo is best being 2019 now...a lot of the forums go way back and can’t seem to find any recent info on newer turbos now...I’ve been seeing all the VF series, 16g,18g etc etc

I was turned to this forum for more info and will still continue to research! Again nice to meet all the members! And sorry if this is inappropriate for asking for all this info in the new members section.
