It's been an amazing run, but all good things must come to an end eventually. It's time for someone else to experience the fun and practicality of a fast wagon. As some of you already knew, she's For Sale!
I've got a good amount history with this car in a relatively short amount of time. I've owned it for 35 months and put about 16k miles a year on it. These are daily driven miles, car show miles, road trip miles and a few autocrosses early on under its belt. I had the honor of attending SEMA 2015 through NRG with it, as well as winning several awards at car shows here and there. I have used it to its fullest, but have taken great care of it, always 3-5 minute warm ups when cold before every drive, changing oil regularly, and cleaning it often. For a couple years I was attending car shows almost every other weekend so I had to.
Straight up, this is by no means a perfect car. It was my daily. There ARE imperfections. With paint, there's a nickle sized paint chip exposing primer on the rear left corner, typical small road chips on the front bumper, front lip has formed a half inch crack (fixable), some scratches on the driver's side sideskirt into the door jam, clear coat on the top of the wing has faded, and a couple small dings. There are various small interior scraches on the plastic, the rear center console passenger cupholder won't stay closed, and some of the alcantara is lifting due to glue residue from a previous suede wrap still being on the pieces. The AST coilovers (6k/5k spring rate) feel stiffer than that, and the clutch is stiffer than I like.
The good? There's nothing like driving a fast AWD wagon that handles amazingly well. This the car you use to carve the canyons on the way to the grocery store and back. This is really an STi that just looks like a Forester because all the important bits have been swapped and are running strong. It's amazing to drive, especially to a stock one. The best part is that all of the swapped parts are also OEM so you know they'll last. And it's limited production numbers make it a jewel.
On top of already being a unicorn (1 of 240 manual 08 Sports XTs), this is an almost completely STi swapped Forester, and has some unique parts, like the Varex active exhaust, and rare, sought after interior and exterior parts. Complete STi and aftermarket suspension and bushings, STi subframes, STi 6MT trainsmission and driveline, diffs, axles, STi Brembos, Forester STi body pieces, and more. I say almost because the engine wasn't swapped from an STi, it's even better. It has its original EJ255 engine, rebuilt with Manley forged pistons, King main/rod bearings, and ARP head studs. No ringland or spun bearings issues here! The previous owners did most of the swap, and AQ Motorsports has done the majority of the more time consuming fixes/maintenance. When I purchased the car, it had just about 20k miles on the rebuilt engine, I've put about 49k miles on it myself. AQ Motorsports installed a Garrett GTX3071R turbo on it in Jan 2017 and replaced the head gaskets in April 2017. Since then it has been running flawlessly! No oil leaks, no rust.
Car dynoed at 426hp/381tq on E85 20psi, 381hp/326tq on 91 19psi tuned by Phatbotti Tuning in Jan 2017. This turbo can push several more PSI with upgraded injectors to 1300cc or bigger.
I've got more info, maintenance log, most maintenance and rebuild receipts, and plenty of photos.
