2005 Subaru Forester STI SG9

Up for sale is my tastefully modified (Clean Title) 2005 Subaru Forester XT Premium that has undergone a complete Forester STI swap done correctly. I am the second owner and have all documented receipts for the last 12 years. The car was 100% stock when I acquired it from the original owner who was a 70 year old woman. This is probably the closest Forester XT to an actual Forester STI. Everything for the most part from the exterior, interior, and drivetrain has been addressed to the Forester STI spec or better. All parts configured on the car are high end and or have been discontinued JDM parts From: Prova, Endless, Fujitsubo, Zero Sports, Genome, HKS, Cusco, and Beatrush. Some other parts used such as: Whiteline and APS also. Everything else will be OEM Forester STI spec for the most part. The complete engine is from a 2013 STI GRB and had 25,983 miles dead when installed on Chassis at 253,000 miles. (I have video of the engine running from the car it came out of). Because it has a later year model EJ257, smog will not be an issue with using (OEM Down-pipe and OEM Cats). OEM VF48 STI standard turbo, newer OEM 2016 STI TMIC, DW740cc injectors, Full and complete APS Turbo Inlet (purchased new) with original receipts. It is super rare and a discontinued piece and is simply the best turbo inlet you can buy for your Subaru. Grimmspeed AOS (Air Oil Separator) routed neatly and connected to a Cusco oil catch can. Just in case the AOS misses any blow by. Ive never had any oil in the actual catch can. The engine is probably the one of the healthiest EJ257 STI motors because it doesn't burn a drop of oil. I check my oil every other fill up when getting gas and it's always right below the full mark. so I've never had to add or top off oil. (Using Redline 5w30) or (Eneos 5w40) and changed every 3,000 miles. The car has been fully tuned by Sean at Metro Performance and it is now making a conservative 251awhp and 309wfpt at 18psi. I wasn't looking for high power outputs. Just simply reliable power for everyday, daily driving that would safely keep the motor strong and healthy. The Exterior and Interior are in excellent condition. Interior looks and smells new and seats are in perfect condition with no rips, tears, or stains. Paint is in great shape with no deep scratches or dents. I will include a full parts list down below. If interested, and for more pictures feel free to contact me at anytime. Asking $21,000. The price is slightly negotiable.
