STI Forester

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I'm looking at buying a 2006 Forester STI and was just wondering if there is any known issues with these vehicles? they are obviously a 2.5 motor and people say the Subaru 2.5 motors are known for doing head gaskets.. I love the idea of the STI Forester being quick great looking and very practical!

 

Any tips or known issues would be muchly appreciated

they are pretty good.. the stock turbo is rather small but generally its a well setup car

i have worked on a few of them for various power mods and still keeping them very practical

Fuel economy might be a consideration if you're middle aged. :D

Too low or too high?

can be tuned for economy and also better top end

have done lots that way where its really good under closed loop and still aggressive under WOT
