6 speed swap into 08 fxt
Posted my previous thread in the wrong section.
Currently in the process of doing a complete 07 sti drivetrain swap into my red 2008 Forester XT 5mt.
Pics posted soon.
Some concerns I have is in regards to the drivetrain angle issues. I have the front and rear crossmembers but have been coming across contradicting opinions in regards to using the fxt front crossmembers with the sti rear to avoid the motor being raised too far.
Any feedback would be appreciated but it's acceptable for this to be a circle jerk thread with drool worthy pics.
I'll also post the swap pics in progress.
Side note: My current daily is a 2015 wrx premium. 276whp/303wtq conservatively.

Forester Swap Newbie
I just picked up a babied 04 Forester XT that will be getting something this summer. I'll be keeping an eye on your progress and will likely have some questions when the time comes. Keep us posted!

When you remove the 1" spacer from the front subframe you will also need an Impreza set of subframe stud-plate as the ones on your car will be too long. (https://www.subaruparts.com/oem-part...MzE4NSZyPTI%3D)
I'm only missing those at the moment to do my swap but I'm also waiting on a new steering rack. Hit me up if you have any more questions. I've been researching for about a year or so at this point.
