Default FXT -in- OBS

Everyone knows the mechanical parts of a forester would bolt up to a 97 OBS, But what about the dash, dash support beam. would it basicaly be the same type of modification as a wrx/sti.?

Well, I want to say no, because an OBS is still an impreza. They're completely different chassis'.

But, crazier **** has happened. . . .:rant:

No the swap is just like a sti swap subframes and all, I think there are spacers but nothing too crazy

I just wanted to know about interior, if the foresters dash would be the same as what you have to do for a Sti swap.

forester is an impreza shell with taller boxier body. my 98 forester has same dash as my 98 obs. and i've personally put a newer dash in an older chassis with little to no modification.

please do some research before spewing utter BS...

thanks for the clear up.... but how is my question utter BS. i was completely aware the forester and impreza were the same. Im pretty sure the guy that first attempted to answered my question is the one needing to do research.
