Biohazard's fleet thread
this is my 03 forester xs with 287k miles. i got it with 233k. i got it after i started working at the subaru dealer near me. i had been thinking about it before i quit my shitty tire shop job to become a subaru tech. its the closest think i could think of that was as close as possible to the wagon but newer.
theres not much going on with her, head gaskets were puking when i got her. i got this one because there was almost no rust on her. especially for being in the rust belt. i got her to daily while the wagon sits in the carport behind it.
while my original plan was to just daily drive it, its never that simple. things break or wear out and then i upgrade if i can. did the headgaskets with arp studs. got nice tires, installed led headlights and tail/brake lights. upgraded the brakes because i tow with her. nothing special just xdrilled/slotted rotors. replaced them once already.
this is where stops being simple, i plan to h6 swap her, keeping the 5speed.
its at the machine shop now. rebuilding it crank bearings up.
the wiring is where it get very complicated. this is the harness for the ecm and the tcm. i need to merge them into the harness in the forester now.
