It's a JNA Performace 3" catback. Basically a Cobb knock off. It sounds good and is decently made. If I ever come up with lots of extra $ I'll either go full Cobb TBE or Invidia Q300 but honestly I love this exhaust for the sound and value for $.

Crappy photo but was too lazy to take anything better after swapping the suspension.

I love this. The simplicity of it. No gaudy body kit or neon colored wheels. Just low with some nice wheels

To all those with stock STI struts and/or sways, how are you liking the handling of your forester? Maybe in comparison to a stock WRX?

Also anyone here running the 4eat? If so, do you have any suspension/driving tips for me, since the 4eat shift to mostly FWD when letting off the gas approaching a turn in 3rd or D, and just results in lift-off-oversteer.
Thanks

I've had the following:

FXT with WRX struts and STi springs
WRX with Tein H techs and 24mm whiteline RSB
FXT with KYB and WRX springs

I can tell you right now that the handling between all three across the board were pretty much exactly the same. The WRX suspension on the FXT as opposed to the stock had a lot less body roll (for obvious reasons) but still handled exactly the same as my old WRX with a RSB.

And i see that you have an 04 FXT too. I read somewhere that in 05 they stiffened the chasis on the FXTs, which is why it has a 5 star crash rating instead of a 4 star, like the 04s have. Who knows. Its good to hear that the car has some handling potential, because on stock suspension, my crapped out 1995 Chevrolet Corsica with a totally collapsed front lower control arm bushing can easily do 10mph better through the corners, and it had bad struts too. Haha

How long did you run the STI springs on the WRX struts? Ive been reading online and I'm getting mixed info about doing that combination.

ran the STi springs for about 8000 miles till the car got totaled.
Never had a problem, smooth comfortable ride and handled fine
