Default Angry Toaster's Homegrown 2001 STi swapped Forester S, Nasioc's Top Scoob 010

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.

Angry Toaster, I talk about your car at least once a month. The uniqueness alone makes it one of the top Subies in the country imho.

Inspiring. Wish there were more Forester enthusiasts out there who went this direction with their cars.

Whats the point? So what, its a fast forester, it has no physical advantage over an impreza on a race track.

Sure it does. He can haul 10 large dogs, all the groceries for the month, 2 or 3 cases of beer, and a large grill AND STILL rip around a track.

I'm not a Forrester guy at all but I think it's fantastic. Props man!

What a douchebag comment.

I don't think the post was to say "Foresters Rulez Teh Trax."

I thnk it was to show everyone how the OP's dream of an STi-swapped Forester became a reality.

Why bother commenting on a post, when you have nothing but negative, unfounded coments?

If the OP was like, "Look out STis and WRXes! The Forrester STi will dominate your car, beat a Lambo around the skidpad, and drop more panites than Brad Pit!" then I would probably agree with you.

Instead, you've just added another useless comment to an otherwise cool thread.

To Angry Toaster: BAD ASS! That's all I can say. I was envious of Davenow's FSTi clone, but now I've found someone else to hate!

I think my next Soob will be an FXT, though going with the NA car does have advantages (price, insurance, weight, etc.).

Congrats on one SICK Subaru.

That is a nice looking forester, I like the old ones way better than the newer bloated ones.

I'd say because it's a bad @$$ sleeper myself, but really it's all in what you like.

looks good besides the person who mounted the tires...
The red dot goes to the valve stem (makes balancing the wheel much easier...)

Otherwise, SICK RIDE!

thats one amazing subi. i've always wondered how an impreza would look if you were able to fit a forester from end on it. especially if it was a front end of one of the new forester sports. has anyone else ever pondered over that combination?

If I ever get the money together I will make a near clone of that car. one of my reasons for buying an SF was the pics I saw of Angry Toasters car.
all time top 3 foresters ever
