Default Srtkr's WRB Forester XT

Im gonna copy and past most of this from subaruforester.org but I'm sure you all will appreciate it!

Well FINALLY after 5 months of looking i found and bought my dream forester. This is hands down the hardest car i have ever had to track down. Im usually the guy my friends go to in order to find a rare part or certain car they want since I'm damn near on every forum known to man haha. However i went through 3 different forester but every time i got close to buying one something happened.
First car i was second waiting in line to purchase and it sold, Next was out of my price range (25,000 LOL) and third one i had a down payment made but hours later dealer called to say the AWD was broke :shake:. At that point i gave up. I was so pissed i didn't sleep a wink that night. Then a gift from the car gods, I got an email from Dan (k44mudfootball) that next morning saying the buyer back out and asked if i was still interested. 12 hours later i booked a flight to San Jose CA to buy this gem.
I arrived at the air port and Dan was nice enough to pick me up and off we went, After some small talk and introducing each other we went to a small parking lot to get down to business. After checking out how mint and well maintained this car was i was sold. Dan kept every receipt over the past 4 years of everything that was done to the car, I was honestly shocked (very rare to find now a days). So signed some papers and the car was mine.


Flying out of state and road tripping a car back home has always been a dream of mine and what better place to go then California? So the FXT and I buckled up and hit the 30 hour and 2,095 mile drive home...but first you know i and to stop at my favorite burger joint.....In-N-Out



After clogging my arteries, i hit the road again. Only to hit a really bad snow/rain storm in the mountains of cali.

Next was the first time of many fueling the unicorn :bacon:

From here on i was just lost on how beautiful this country really is so here is some random pics from the west coast [url=http://s130.photobucket.com/user/s2000101/media/DSC_0397_zpsefac3426.jpg.html]

Found this guy in Cheyenne Wy
Last pictures being on the road, At this point i was exhausted and just didn't care about anything other then getting home


After 36 hours total of being on the road i was home. Car was filthy and i smelled like fast food. First thing first was to get some fresh oil in it. (jack stand was used just not in the picture )
The goods

So here we are today, Car is all clean again and i started the mods. Within 10 mins of being home i threw some goodies from my wrx in. Led interior lights and Blox 490 shift knob


So this ends my little bonding story of my and the XT. This is my 5th subaru and by far the best one i have owned. I honestly think i am going to keep this car for a very long time which is rare for me haha.

Here is the run down of stuff at my house waiting to go in.
-Black Recaro Speed seats
-BC coilovers
-Clarion Nx-603 in dash
-Sti front control arms
-Subtle soultions hood struts, fender bracing, and black hvac knob vinyl.

Then I picked up this SYMS 3 inch catted down pipe


Ordered a Cobb SF intake and air box, along with an access port v3

Gf brought these 03-05 tails to my hotel so I could instal them on my day off


Couple weeks later after finishing work for the summer i got down to business

Got some free time today and threw the Cobb SF intake and air box, along with subtle solutions hood struts. Both extremely high quality parts. Very impressed with both!

Plans for the day were Sti side vinyl, Sti limited front lip, BC coilover install, de badge the rear, and rhino line the wheel wheels.

First things first, Lip and vinyl.




Next was to get the car in the air and clean out the wheel wells in preparation for paint.



Here is a good shot of the wheel wells before and after. Extremly happy with the way this came out. I ended up use sing some 3M spray liner found at my local advance auto. 3 cans is what you'll need to do all four corners

Before
After

Ill be painting the calipers black in a couple days too. Should help by giving it a more "Clean" look.
While that was drying i decided to debadge the rear. Heard the "forester" badge had pin holes so decided to leave that alone.
Before

After

Ordered some matte black 3M vinyl as well, hoping to take care of that silver trim piece and wrap the hvac as well.

Had my buddy Jayson give me a hand with reinstalling the coil overs since its a pain with 1 person. Here is a shot of his super clean Honda civic si

First while having the front bumper repaired and painted (damage from past driver) I decided to brake the brakes black, and throw my srt-4's ccw's on the car. Looks great but needs to be at least 18's.
Wheel size is 17x9 +28. Next i had the headlights re finished to perfection a couple days ago so decided to hook up the "demon eyes" they are actually white led's but at this angle they looked blue. Finally my clutch came in, I decided on ACT HD with light weight fly wheel. Should be in by the end of the month. Just have other things to worry about currently.

Finally got the bumper back a week late but no complaints since its perfect, had the shop fix the bent from previous owner and shave the license plate holes. Im gonna pop the side vents out and have him just clear them to match the factory sports grill. Its the minor thing that stand out from the crowd.

Here is a before and after.


Got my Vanity plates too so did a little shoot in my driveway

Got some updates for everyone. Installed the STI intercooler, Torque Solutions pitch mount, and sti shifter trim. Since i dont use the "aux" port due to my new head unit removed the coin trey sti's come with. Once you do that there is a hole in the "cubby" so i cut an old game cube box up and kept it in place with some hot glue. Its a perfect spot to place the cell phone when driving, and having extra storage is a win win. Here is the pics

bought this and rewrapped it in flat black vinyl to match the rest of the interior. Incase anyone was wondering this is a direct bolt in from the impreza to the 06-08 forester
GameCube Box


and installed, ill take more pictures of the final look tomorrow.

and engine bay, I need to get some better pics too i know lol
