Yeah I got that Forester in 2012. It was the first turbocharged car that I ever drove. It is a blast! Amazing how much power can be generated from a 2.5 liter four cylinder engine. Pulling long grades is no problem, need to pass, just floor it and around you go. The guy I bought it from had a WRX turbo on it and had it up to 354whp, I forget what the torque numbers were, but they too were very impressive. He wanted me to drive it like that but I declined, because there was no way I was going to swap everything over every two years for emissions testing. He had to bring it back to stock to get it emissions tested before selling it to me, so I had him leave it like that. He left on a bunch of suspension goodies so the thing handles like a cat on sandpaper. They are sleepers. The stock hp and tq is enough for me.
