Default 2014 Forester Rear Differential Final Drive

Hello! My brother has a heavily modified 2014 Subaru Forester and the factory differential has been a weak link we've been eyeing for upgrade for awhile. What is the final drive of the rear differential and / or what are the candidates for replacement? Is there a limited slip option from another model/trim that will drop in?

The vehicle in question is a 2014 Subaru Forester with the CVT automatic transmission and 2.5l naturally aspirated FB motor.

Thanks for the help!

???? Does not compute.

Pics or it didn't happen.



Just kiddin with ya.

For future ref, cars101.com has specs for virtually every subaru from late 90's up till now (i believe he retired in the last few years).

Dont quote me on this 100%, but i believe the SJ forester autos are 3.70 rear diff ratio, which iirc, is same as 06/07ish WRX's. Not a huge strength diff, but it could get ya an LSD. Beyond that, i guess you're searching for a useable r180 rear diff option. Ultimately, ring gear isnt imposible to chance in either diff, so that opens a lot of options to mix and match.

Also ask this if you havent already on subaruforester.org, they're knowledgeable there too.
