This is one of the most unique foresters Ive had the pleasure of seeing. Jim is constantly upgrading from one mod to the next. Always keeping his setup fresh! From tires and wheels to brakes to suspension, to interior, to turbo after turbo. It all adds up to an eye catching Power making beauty! He recently added another power making goodie. But Ill leave that for him to tell.

This past Sunday we rolled the rear wheel wells on this monster. Now the steem rollers Jim calls wheels have a little more room to travel freely. Then he took me for a ride. What an animal this thing is with the new meth kit!

Thats Ken . You always do the best for everybody. Today I loaded up the car with cases of soda, water and lots of food in the trunk . I drove the Foz normally for myself .Just a Little aggressive . Just relay no breaking in the corners. I did about sixty miles altogether. The tires never touched the fendor.

Neither Jim or I remembered to snap any pics while the foz was in the air yesterday :( Next time.

Speaking of bracing, Jim brought me a nice little present yesterday. It was a shiney new set of GTspec fender braces! Jim rocks!

Heres a shot immediately after installing red 4/2 pots and racing brake slotted rotors


A shot of the engine bay at last winters Forester meet


And a shot of the black beast in a line up of fozzies at the rainy auto cross meet last fall.
