Lightbulb Forester Only Web Page

Hello. I am new to the I-Club (thought it was only for Imprezas) but have been working on a Forester Info page for a while now. You can check it out at www.foresterperformance.fanspace.com if you like. I am open for any suggestions if you think I shouold add / remove anything. I am still trying to learn about the Forester, and then put everything I learn there for everyone else...

I was wondering when someone would do a site like that for the Foresters! Good job; it gave me an idea of what's actually out there for the Forester. The photo gallery had some VERY nice stuff

Great job there! Thanks for the great effort, you must have put lots of time into that site. It's definitely going into my bookmarks. Finally a page for the 4E* guys.

Aces bud...you are doing a great job. I too have bookmarked your site.

Did you not have an alignment problem when you did the suspension? I see you plan adjustable pillow blocks for future mods.

Also consider fuel control if you go the head/cam route and how about an air intake to round that off.

Thanks for not only doing some pretty impressive mods , but for sharing them in such an impressive way!

To answer your question, Lakepop, I only had a problem in the rear. The rear is not adjustable for camber. Both rear wheels were about -1.5 degrees. Someone is supposed to be sending me a pair of cam bolts to replace the upper ones in the rear so that they will be adjustable.

However, I probably won't need them (much) since I had to raise the Forester a little using the Impreza RS Springs. Those Tein springs (meant to lower an Impreza 1.5") were so low in the Forester I was essentially just sitting on my bump stops.

Some day (when they are easier to get) I will probably change them to Tein Medium Springs. The ride now is too cushy. I want to carve apex's. Oh well, at least my wife is happy...

Nice site! It's good to know I'm not the only person with a bazooka strapped to the back of the seats

I haven't done any performance mods yet (like ever, to any car) but I'm planning on ordering larry ganz's intake soon to give that a shot.

Very nice site. How long did it take you to build it? I hope you can find & include some tips for us dirt road runners out here. Thanks for all your hard work.

Thanks again

Question

Well, since I don't do any dirt road bashing (south Florida dirt roads = deep mud) I really don't have any tips. If you know of any, or find any, let me know and I'll include them. Anything relevant that anyone thinks I should include, please e-mail it to me. I'll be happy to review and probably include it on the site. But, for know, I am only including what I have found, and that is pretty much what I have been interested (tarmac setups & high performance road-going Foresters). I will probably review these Forester posts in the near future for some of your past suggestions, with an eye toward updating my site. I try to get in and update it (if I have new info) at least once a week. Don't hesitate to contact me with suggestions, praise, or constructive criticsms. Just don't flame me, okay, I'm doing my best. =O)

I tried both links and nothing comes up. Can you re-check?

Is the ECU upgrade for the EJ25? How much is it?

I can safely say that John has what could be the greatest amount of Forester information available. We met a a mini-meet tonight and he has tons of stuff and it would probably take days to scan all of it.

I can certainly agree...the Forester is a force to be reckoned with when you see it in person.
