I do have a customer with our STI intercooler on his Forester.

I had a stock STI intercooler on my Forester and it was an easy bolt on. I had to mod the firewall AC line with a little bending and vinyl hose warp of areas that interfered. I posted above that the stock Forester Y pipe and the stock STI Y pipe are different. ^^ see above.

I now have an ETS TMIC on my 2006 Forester XTI using the stock STI Y pipe and it fits great. The fit of the ETS intercooler is better than the stock STI intercooler.
