Hey guys.  Long time lurker and haven't introduced myself.  My name is Chad and I drive a 2005 Subaru Forester 2.5x.  Just got it so it's completely stock.  More or less I want to keep the ride height stock, but want to improve the handling and slap some all terrain tires on there since I daily it.  The reason why I got a forester is because I work for a local lawn maintenance / snow removal company, so the Subaru is awesome for towing the equipment around.

But, my future plans are the following:

- replace engine & transmission mounts
- replace front and rear shifter bushings
- replace swaybars and endlinks with whiteline units
- do a hybrid intake setup
- UEL headers
- STi axleback
- AVO throttlebody controller

Very new to the Subaru world, but my boss used to drive around a supercharged Saabaru, so he's always willing to lend me a hand and teach me.

Hope to learn and share with you guys as the car progresses.

                      Welcome! Good sounding plans. I'm 2 foresters deep myself. 2009 XT and a imported 2001 Forester STi.

                        Thanks!  So far so good.  Nothing to really worry about.  I think my heatshield for the exhaust is starting to come loose since it rattles when I'm accelerating.  But, other than that just some maintenance and paint touchup is what I'm aiming to do in the short term.
