Ive seen a lot of people say clean your maf sensor and may want to check all your grounds or put grounding kit on it.

I think 99% of us have no friggin clue as to what you are talking about (lack of youre automotive terminology). Fix the thread title too, just posting "forester xt" is about as general as you could ever get. Give us more info that we could actually help you with, make the title of this thread say something related to the problem! Like "my turbo is shaking?"

I own a 2008 FXT Sport and there should be no shaking. It should run just as smooth as any other turbo 2.5L Subaru motor. Please elaborate on the shake and we'll see if some ideas can be generated.

This has to be one of the most vague thread title and description of a problem I have ever read on NASIOC.

I myself have a 04 XT that had a shake on idle, I replaced the front oxygen sensor and that got rid of it. I had already clean the MAF, done spark plugs. I did a little research and a few people had changed out their front o2 even if they were not getting getting codes for it.

My 05 FXT has a shake at ideal as well. I'll have to replace the front o2 and see what happens. Pulled my hair out trying to fix it, no cells but it just dont feel right the shaking is to much to be normal.
