Hey! First off I’d like to thank you for checking out my journal! About a year a go I picked up a bone stock, "stanced", salvaged title, 2004 Aspen White Forester XT 4eat. Since then I have been very avid about making the car better in every single way possible. I personally choose to do all the work on my car myself and love doing it. With that being said, I've built this car and know everything about it, inside and out. About 5 months after purchasing the car I slammed on the brakes extremely hard causing the oil in the pan to slosh to the front causing a severe drop in oil pressure. This severe drop caused cylinder number 1’s rod bearing to fail calling for a full rebuild of the engine. So I decided to build it up a little bit and go from there. Once the “new engine” was in the car, I got it tuned and drove it 12,000 miles. I had never brake boosted/ launched the car before so I decided to give it a try…I launched really hard and guess what…my front diff case on my 4eat cracked. The crack didn’t cause failure, but the 2000 miles of improper ring and pinion spacing did as well as the constant gear oil leak. After all this, I decided to take it upon my self to swap a 6 speed into it. After Swapping in the 6 Speed, I drove it for 20,000 more miles, misse da shift, and then I bent a rod....so then I proceeded to build Engine #3. All the work on the car has been performed by me since the day i bought it Currently the car contains the following: Power Mods COBB Accessport V3 Tomei Timing Belt Guide Tomei Expreme UEL Headers INVIDIA Catless DP HKS HI-POWER Carbon Catback Exhaust Mishimoto Radiator Mishimoto Upper Radiator Hose Mishimoto Lower Radiator Hose Grimmspeed Y-Pipe Kit Grimmspeed TMIC Optima Yellow Top Battery Grimmspeed 3-Port Boost Controller Grimmspeed 8mm Phenolic Spacers Thermal Zero Turbo Blanket Perrin Turbo Heat Shield Perrin Turbo Inlet Perrin Recirc Valve AEM 320LPH Fuel Pump JE Pistons 99.75mm Manley H Beam Rods Killer B Oil Pickup Killer B Windage Tray Killer B Oil Pan ARP Head Studs Gates HD Racing Timing Belt Kit Carbon Fiber Pulley Cover Perrin Big MAF Short Ram Intake Turbosmart 38/40mm EWG Grimmspeed EWG 3 Bolt Up-Pipe Grimmspeed Universal IWG Bracket Injector Dynamics ID1000 Top Feed Injectors TGV Deletes Omni Power 4 Bar Map Sensor Blouch Dominator 1.5XTR 8cm^2 Hot Side Bee*R Rev Limiter ACL Race Standard Size Main Bearings ACL Race X Size Rod Bearings 1 Step Colder NGK Iridium Spark Plugs (.025 gap) DeatschWerks DW350iL 350LPH Inline fuel pump (hard wired) AEM 320LPH intank fuel pump (hard wired) 2L Surge Tank Hardwired Fuel Pump Russel -6AN Lines Off Surge Tank ***Engine Built By Me Driveline Mods ACT Xtreme Duty Clutch 2005 STi 6 Speed Transmission 2005 JDM Forester STI Transmission Cradle NYPPD Aluminum Driveshaft Bushings LSD WRX R160 3.9 Rear Diff DCCDPRO Spiider Manual/Auto Center Diff Controller Kartboy Short Shifter Kartboy Shifter Bushings Kartboy Delrin Shift Knob Kartboy Pitch Stop Kartboy 6 Speed Transmission Cradle Bushings Kartboy Rear Diff Crossmember Bushings ***Auto 4EAT to STI 6 Speed Swap Done By Me Handling/ Suspension Mods FEAL 441 Coilovers FEAL Rear Camber Plates Outerwears Coil Covers Swift Springs (7K Front/ 5K Rear) 2004 JDM Forester STi Front Control Arms 2004 JDM Forester STi Rear Lateral Links F/R Strut Bars Whiteline 30mm Steering Rack Bushings Whiteline Rear Camber Bolts Whiteline 22mm Adjustable Front Swaybar Whiteline 22mm Adjustable Rear Swaybar Whiteline 22mm Front Swaybar Bushings Whiteline 22mm Rear Swaybar Bushings Kartboy Rear Swaybar Endlinks Kartboy Front Swaybay Endlinks Kartboy Rear Subframe Lockdown Bolts Whiteline Rear Heavy Duty Swaybar Mount Whiteline Swaybar Lateral Locks F/R Brake Mods 2004 STi Brembos OEM Rotors OEM Pads Kartboy Rear Caliper Adapter KNS Parking Brake Adapter Shoes Grimmspeed Mastercylinder Brace Custom Front Brake Cooling Ducts StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines F/R Wheels/ Tires 2007 STI BBS 5x100 to 5x114 Spacer Adapters Nitto NT555 255/40/17 Anodized Red Aluminum Extended Lug Nuts Interior Mods STi Floor Matts 2004 STi Hazard Switch 2004 WRX Front Seats AEM UEGO Wideband/ AFR AEM Boost Gauge AEM Oil Pressure Gauge ARK Designs Turbo Timer Momo Steering Wheel/Adapter/Spacer Red LED Interior Lights LED Dome Lights Radar Detector Broadway Mirror Air Spencer Rear OEM Forester Cargo Matt Carbonfiber Wrapped Interior Trim STI Key Stereo Components Comp CVR 12 Subwoofer w/ custom box Kicker Mono 1000watt RMS amp 4 6.5 KS Doors speakers 2 OEM tweeters Kenwood Indash (Buletooth, Bluetooth Audio, iPod, DVD player, etc) Backup Camera Exterior Mods 2004 JDM Forester STi Hood Scoop 2004 STi Badge 2004 STi Rear Diffuser Forester Front Lip 15% Tint All Around Rally Armor Red Mudflaps Bumper Fasteners Some ******** Grill Hella Horns Back Up Camera Subaru Hood Protector Rear Wing Rear Bumper Matt Rigid Industries 30" LED Lightbar Front Fender Spacers Hood Pins CS Style Side Skirts CS Style Rear Aprons CS Style Front Lip Fluids Transmission Fluid: Subaru Extra S Rear Differential Fluid: Subaru Extra S (Limited Slip) Engine Oil: AMSOIL Dominator 15w50 (Larger Rod Bearing Clearances) Oil Filter: K&N HP-1008 Brake Fluid: Motul DOT4 Clutch Fluid: Motul DOT4 Engine Coolant: Prestone 50/50 Power Steering Fluid: Valvoline ATF Fuel: CA 91/ e85 Tunes/ Power Figures COBB Accessport V3 Tunes CA91: Metro Performance So Cal Made 321HP/326FTLBS @ 20PSI Dyno Dynamics (sheet included) E85: Metro Performance So Cal Made 403HP/410FTLBS @ 22PSI Dyno Dynamics (sheet included)
