Last night I went down to the Moore Performance garage to take a look at my Down Pipe that was finished. It is being sent off to get ceramic coated now.









I just can't wait until they finish my 4-2 Header and 2-1 Up Pipe combo!

Is that for the combustion chamber? Or is there some other chamber on the car that needs correcting?

Do want that light bar. I don't even have a grill though.

Those threads over on the Forester forums are something else. You are clearly a very smart guy, my head hurts just looking at the calculations and planning you did for every piece. Very well done.

Ok, stupid question but I have been wondering.

Fozzies, are they, or can they be built to haul @$$? I know that anything can with money of course, but I mean in general? I am really liking them lately and was considering an older one as opposed to a 2011 WRX. Are the XT the same as a Legacy GT engine wise?

Sorry to throw this in your thread but I really like the looks of your Subaru and see you have done a lot of engine work to it.

Thanks.

Fozzies can be built to haul some serious ass. Like crazy fast, and it only seems more so because nobody expects it from one.

They are a slightly de-tuned WRX. Same turbo, same block. The forester actually has a few nice features over the WRX such as it comes with the same endlinks as an STI, no C-shaped bits out back! But really if you can do it to a WRX you can do it to a Forester, only a few things here and there make it a bit of a challenge.

Moore Performance is doing the final production prototype of the 4-2-1 equal length header on my car! Once that goes on with the 16G we are looking for a conservative 300whp tune as this is my daily driver! Nice quick spool for the street, should be pretty lively.

That is my goal.... to surprise people. About a 1" drop and a factory STI cat-back it will come out of no where. Oh and as you can see from the picture I am not afraid to keep using it for what it was designed for!

"Shraggy" have you seen the videos on the 2011 forester xti's? they are the sti of foresters.. they are pretty much almost exactly as fast as the wrx sti's and they sound wicked just like a wrx would.. and your question about the xt vs the legacy gt engine, im not too sure if they are the same i just know that i got a friend who owns an 04' xt with catless, cai, short shift and ran a 13.8 qrtr mile.. pretty ballzy

2004-2005 Forester XT has the same engine (and turbo IIRC) as the STI. Hell, they even had AVCS just like the STI.

All forester XT's in the states came with a TD04. The motor was very similar to the STI in 04-05. The 06-08's come with the 257 block.

In any case, they were better than the WRX of the same generation (04-05) just due to the the AVCS. Always wanted one!

When I graduate from Bugeye wagon ownership I'm likely going to jumpship to turbo Forester territory; yours is a particular nice example of the direction I'd take. When I finally went "Stage 2" I seriously debated getting a Moore Performance exhaust but it was a tad too pricey at the time.

They are EL and we played around with some of the prototypes using EL headers and some using EL twin scroll headers to start with. No oil pan swap necessary!

I think we currently have the quickest and faster Forester to date. ET 11.41 and a 122 mph trap speed. Dyno graph at the bottom shows our small tube, header running a BW S256 turbo, liquid to air IC, 23psi and E85 on an Element Tuning Pro Comp motor. I have to post more info in some other threads to find out if it is the quickest and fastest, but here is our company Forester monster owned by Dale (GarageXti)......
