    Not your typical STi build

    Well it all started with a 200k mIle 2007 Forester x that I bought for $3,200 on 2/12/14


    First and most important mod is the avengers bobble heads


    And secondly the 2007 sti


    It almost makes me sad to take a sti apart but it's for a good cause




    Free Invidia exhaust

    So far it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I have swapped out the trans, suspension, front and rear subframes, clutch and brake master cylinders, brakes and the center console


    And yes it's a NA forester with a 6 speed and Brembos but that will all change as soon as I rebuild the sti motor. I picked up some Evo Recaro seats that already had Planted seat brackets for a wrx last week



    I also picked up some jdm sliding rear seats from a member on here las night


    Had to take the exhaust to the muffler shop to get longer hangers welded on but it was a free exhaust so I didn't mind paying $50

    Nothing much to see under the hood of the forester right now. I have to build the motor that came with the wrecked STi.

    That's pretty slick. Do you have any sagging issues in the rear from the extra weight of the body?

    No sagging at all. I think I read somewhere thatr the forester is only about 100 lbs more then the sti but I don't know that for sure. I think the main issue with the foresters sagging when the wrx suspension is put under it is because there is a spacer between the frame and the crossmember of the forester that lowers the motor so its not prone to roll so easy. I took that spacer out when I swapped the front cross members.

    This is really cool
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.
