Hello all!

So I guess its time to fire this bitch up again and get the ball rolling again. I know for some this is going to be a disappointment and to others maybe an evolution to rival the gods... Either way its happening and I have new determination to start this up again.

So as some of you know project ForeSTAR was going swimmingly and then we hit a bit of a snag waiting for some parts. Weeks, then months past and then race season was about to start and Foz wasn't even close to being ready. That plus an up-coming move forced me to make some rash choices and downsize the stable. The ForeSTAR was put up for sale. After a few changes to my future moving plans I was able to keep my shop for an additional few months so I have time to do one last project before I move and fall of the "crazy Subaru guy" radar till I move to another place with a shop. Don't get me wrong, I'll still work on cars but nothing to the extent of the projects I am known for... So with that said I realized that though it maybe incredibly cool I do not have the room to have a car I can only drive 10-12 times a year and can only do one thing... GO STUPID FAST. I need something that I can use all year around when my DD (91 MR2 n/a) is ether too small or too rwd.. So I bought an 01 Forester as a second car, sold the Exploder to my mom's bf and was going to sell ForeSTAR. I have since changed my mind and decided to part out a few things on it to help change the direction of this build in a big way.

Parts I have kept:

Engine:
STi Short Block (w/ High Comp Pistons, Forged rods yada yada)
All my JIC Fittings
Fuel Cell
Agency Power Crank Pulley
Unorthodox P/S Pulley
Unorthodox Alternator Pulley
Tomei Timing Belt Guide
Cosworth Oil Pan Baffle
PIA Special Burly Pickup Tube
Accusump

Drivetrain/ Suspension:
STi RA Spec C 6-speed (Tranny, Diff Axles)
Exedy Clutch
ACT Flywheel
Agency Power Short Shifter
Kartboy Front + Rear Bushings
STi 5x114.3 Bolt on Front Bearings

Exterior:
JDM Grill
JDM Corner Lights
Fenders
ForeSTAR Stitch Welded Shell

Interior:
Prosport EVO Gauges
Racing 5 Pane Mirror

I am keeping the shell of the ForeSTAR and using it to do all the fabrication for the new project. I can assemble my new motor and install it with the tranny and make it a full roller painted and ready to go. Once I am there I will take the 01 Foz I bought and use the:

Full Harness
Full Interior
Hood
Doors
Hatch
And some misc crap to finish the new project. The rest I’ll sell to recoup moneies.

So, parts are ordered so there is no going back, by Thursday I will have all the parts ordered or in my hands and I will be putting in a lot of time to get this done as fast as I can so there will be lots of up-dates!!

Not going to go into much detail about the new project but in the next coming weeks you will start to get the jist. Project ForeSTAR was a killer project, a one of a kind race Foz unlike anything out there. The new project is along the same line, a one of a kind race Foz (I mean really one of a kind). We are just changing the Media for which it’s driving on….

Here is the new parts list:

Engine:
2008 Impreza SOHC Heads
Gates Racing Belt (SOHC)
ARP Headstuds (SOHC)
10mm Spark Plug Wires
WRX Top mount TGVs (w/ Delete)

X3 10” Electric Fans
OBX SS Header (N/A)
OBX 2.5 Exhaust
Universal 3” Snorkel Snout
150amp High Power Alternator
X2 Optima Batteries

Drivetrain/ Suspension/ Wheel & Tires:

Exterior:

That’s all you get till I start posting up-dates. I should be starting this project this weekend so I’ll have a nice initial up-pipe starting Monday.

Also I posted ForeSTAR in the Top Scoob competition. Since she is going to get the major conversion the only other Top Scoob it will be eligible will be Forester only and I am determined to be the first to Win 2 Top Scoobs so Vote for your favorite ForeSTAR!!
