Seriously, if you are thinking of doing this (I am trying to just duplicate the performance...) you will need the suspension, wheels, ground effects, hood, and if your are really going for a total STi look, the interior. If you want the performance too, you will need an aftermarket turbo kit with the intercooler, and the STi performance exhaust. (or a complete 2.0l turbo motor) You would probably be better off in the long run just importing an STi Forester... But if you are serious about converting yours, I guess you should try either an authorized STi dealer or www.Takakaira.com or some other Japan-parts seller.

Good luck. Hope you have deep pockets.

ForesterPerformance-

the forester will be a daily driver. I am either going to keep my 2.5RS, and turn it into a project car or... get a 1993 impreza (for a project) and yet another option would be... to get a 240SX (as a project).

I don't think so. importing a whole car would be a tremendous pain in the ass, especially in california.

thanks,

I don't get it. Daily driver?? What does that have to do with anything? My Forester is a daily driver. Most of the STi Foresters in Japan are daily drivers. If all yuo want is the hood and ground effects, they are available from any J-PArts vendors. Heck, I bet iSR can get 'em for you.

And, stay away from the Nissan. Subarus are MUCH better cars. (IMHO)

I meant daily driver, as compaired to the project car (which will not be a "daily driver"). the plan is... the forester would be more show and the other car would be more go.

don't get me wrong I love my subie. but the 240SX + SR20DET = big power, big fun, big drifts and little cost(relatively speaking).
