    My Mod Journal

    So,

    On September 9, 2012. I purchased my 2010 Subaru Forester from Nalley Toyota in Roswell GA. It had 24,000 some odd on it when I purchased it. I have been slowly modding it to get it the way I like. In the nearly three years I've had it I've put nearly 50,000 miles on it.

    List of mods done thus far

    Stoptech pads, centric premium rotors
    Power flex rear adjustable camber kit.

    WRX upper control arms
    Kartboy front and rear endlinks

    Prothane cradle mount diff bushings
    Whiteline rear (front of the rear) diff bushings
    Prothane steering rack bushings



    Upcoming mods

    Rallitek Transmission insert
    Cusco power steering brace
    Whiteline 20mm rear sway bar



    On 3-1-14

    I had WRX upper control arms installed and my rear camber kit transferred from the Forester upper control arms to the WRX ones.

    I also had the whiteline 22mm non adjustable sway bar installed in the front and kartboy front and rear endlinks installed. At that time I also had an alignment done.

    The car handles phenomenal now with just the right amount of stiffness.

    Next up will be the whiteline anti lift kit, whiteline steering rack bushings, and powerflex sub frame bushings (comfort ones).

    Forester F badge over lays added to the front and rear emblems.





    Gray Carbon fiber Subaru logo over lay


    Weathertech floor mat Subaru Logos




    The drive by wire kit that is installed in Imprezas and as part of the touring package on Foresters will fit an NA forester. Below is a pic of the Subtle Solutions dead pedal and the brushed aluminum alloy pedal kit from Subaru installed in my 2010 NA forester. Several people tried to tell me it would not fit/work. Subaru of America said it would so I tried it and it does work. Just so that everyone knows the stock pedal part number ends in 40 and this part number ends in 50. It is a direct OEM replacement. The brake pedal is just a cover and goes over the brake pedal like the stock rubber piece does. The gas pedal is one complete assembly and is held in with two bolts and the drive by wire sensor/pedal sensor or whatever it is called plugs into the top.



    The part number for this pedal kit is as follows.

    Accelerator Assembly 36010AG150
    Brake Pedal Cover 36023KE000

    Car as it sits today


    The next mods in the coming weeks will be the Grimm speed pulley, and possibly window tint.

    2-26-16 I had Fastech Motorsports in Knoxville TN install prothane steering rack bushings, a powerflex 08+ anti lift kit that is caster adjustable, and rear (front of the rear) differential bushings. Then had an alignment! Drives alot better now.
