Intake should fit. Headers and exhuast might not since the chassis is different.

Boostmen - depending on model year, your intake & header should fit (this depends ofcourse on whether your Forester is auto or manual tranny). The cat- back portion won't fit b/c the one of the Impreza will be too short (tip wise)

JaxxaJ and GTBGUY, thank you. I figured that the intake and headers wouldn't be a problem but the exhaust on the other hand would be.. btw It's a '99 manual

Boostmen - The intake won't fit your Forester b/c your '00RS uses MAP vs. the MAF used on the '99 Forester. To get your intake to work (depending on the intake) you could cut off the excess length and get an extra reducer for the MAF -> pipe.

Unfortunately the intake was actually damaged in the wreck, what intake would you and anyone else recommend for my MAF Forester set up??

the header should fit, being the same motor. if you're maf equipped, stay away from intakes all together. K&N panel filter is fine, even with a FULLY BUILT motor. If you want power in the forester, try some cams. Cobb tuning.com (stage 1 cams) will work well, as long as the valve lash is set properly by the shop doing it....they made the biggest difference in power on my 99, and only cost 500 beans.(after the core charge)

yeah cams were in the plan as well. Infact if I plan on doing power upgrades they'll most likely all be from Cobb, excluding some cheaper suspension mods. It is MAF based and I know that the Cobb cai can work but thanx for the suggestion Boost-Free. Cobb's new equal length header looks outstanding!
