Yeah, its not going to happen. I have been down that road for the last year or so trying to figure it out and it just isnt worth the hassle or the money spent to gain 10 hp.

Get an XT or focus on things like suspension and tires like others have said. Make that Foz a mean Aussie off-roader:biggrin:

I see this is your first post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

I'd recommend a high flow panel air filter & an axle back exhaust to start with. You're not going to get a huge power increase, but you can do suspension upgrades to make your Forester handle much better. :cool:

Take a look here to see what we did to our '03 X. :wink:

Yeah, forget about power. I've had for 05 XS since new and I've been focusing purely on suspension, interior quality/creature comfort, and some aethetics.
