OMGHi2U Angry Toaster's Homegrown 2001 Forester STi .. Top Scoob 010

I've always been a fan of the older SF5 turbo Foresters from Japan. Especially the STi II and STi II Type M Foresters. After the luster wore off my STi swapped GC, I decided to purchase the N/A USDM counterpart of the sweet JDM turbo Forester. I picked it up for a few reasons, but the main one... how awesome would it be to have an STi swapped Forester!? A month after I got it home, it had it's STi transplant.

It was supposed to be a quick project. Swap the Forester and go back to making the GC a dedicated track car. Well, the GC is still sitting in a corner of my garage while the Forester receives all the attention.

The Forester has gone through a lot of iterations during it's life span. Mostly all of which are performance minded for road racing. As it's one thing to build a performance car, but it's another to actually track it.
