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.

No emission testing here in mid Missouri, so I could hop it up all I want.
But it is fast enough and I did get it up to 120 mph one time and it still had more.
It handled good and I read later the rev limiter was set at 129 mph.
Average mpg is about 24.

But we are way off topic. Maybe if John sees this he will give us a Midwest forum.
Or we could just use the Reunion forum when we are not planning the Reunion.
We've all read about hijacking a thread, We may have to hijack a whole forum topic.

New Missouri resident here, just moved to Lee's Summit. (Well, technically I grew up in Missouri, but I have not lived here since 2006). Great to be here.
