:dontknow: Hey guys.

Well this has been along time coming, and with my turbo and what not going on soon, i figured i might get something down, so i can add as i go along.

I bought my MY10xt premium back in october 2009. At the time there were no black ones available, except for two at tynans sutherland, but after spending 35 minutes walking around there yard and being completely ignored, i promptly drove to subaru at narellen and purchased a brand new black my10. The wife(Ex) and myself had to wait for around two months for a fresh one to come off the boat, but the call came and i went down to pick her up.

At the time i had not seen one single forester in this shape modified at all, so the plan was to be the first. Being the sucker i am and purchasing extended warranty, i was hesitant for the first few months to change anything at all. Still convinced i would be the first to mod one of these things(due to there lack of popularity) i was promptly put in my place by a silver sh9 on the m5, it was loud, low, kitted and on 20's. Some 12 months later i would come to know the car as flysti.

Seeing steves car put me on a mission, and my first mod was to swap out the factory suspension for some oem bilsteins from a liberty for the front and a set of 08 sti rears. Feeling the difference that first drive left me in awe, It was literally like night and day. Thinking back now to everyone who saw it, would commented just how nice it sat, i even had an old couple stop me at the lights and ask me what suspension set up i ran.. :thumbs: The car basically stayed like that for some months, with the addition of some stainless mufflers, which gave a really nice rumble, but were not too loud in cabin.

Unfortunately for me i got tired of being able to drive over things at a reasonable height and the choice was made to swap out the ride comfort for coilovers. I picked up a near new set of d2 coilovers from a guy on subaruforester.org for $600 delivered and as fast as they arrived i had them on the car playing with height and once i found a nice height, this is where the car has stayed

Moving on around 12 months and i had not done too much to the car, untill one day a friend at work happen to mention he bought a grimmspeed boost solenoid and for some reason there was 2 in the box. So for the small sum of $60 i purchased his surplus solenoid and went home to look up what i had just bought. :dontknow:

After doing some research on the solenoid i ended up reading about the benefits of exhaust change and the need to retune, this got me keen for more power, so after contacting troy at prospeed racing and negotiating a ridiculously good price, i hopped in my car and drove an hour or so to his warehouse and picked myself up a spankin new invidia Q300 turbo back exhaust with twin titanium tips. After talking with troy about the need to retune the ecu ( i came from S series nissans) this led me to talking with matt(TH) and the next week he was in sydney, we organise a meeting and he tuned my car, factoring in the 3 inch which would be fitted the coming weekend.

So i eventually got to fitting the invidia exhaust sytem. I have to say, if anyone is even contemplating an exhaust, you will not find better than this thing. Dual system, single from the turbo to diff, splits into two, with twin mufflers and fits like it was a factory item. Matt(TH) suggested i look at this system when he was tuning my car. His statement was something like, it fits like a glove and to be honest, he was spot on. This system was dummied up to check for any issues and instead of adjusting it to fit, i literally just tightened it up and was on my way.

Of course, being this is the sti system(twin tip) i had to trim around the bumper to accommodate the tips. once this was done, it was pretty clear the twin tips stuck out way too far, so a trip to my local muffler shop was on the cards. i had the boys trim off and inch from the outer mufflers and an inch and a half from the inner mufflers. this allows the tips to better follow the sh bumper line.

When i got home, i looked at my new rear end and decided she needed to be naked. So i cracked out the heat gun and debadged her bum. A quick buff with the rop and she was naked and smooth. :ok:

a few months on and trolling for sale on here i noticed that ken (oxtail) had a sale thread up. as he decided to sell off his car, he was getting rid of all his parts. One of the things he listed was a "roof rail delete kit". This being one of my "to do" things i promptly jumped on it and he put it away for me untill i was able to pick it up. Lucky for me as the company only sent a few kits to australia before they put the whole process in the "too hard basket". Ken, i believe was the last to convince them it was worth their time to ship. :thumbs:

Eventually i got around to kens place and picked up the delete kit and had a good yarn with ken. He told me his desire to fit the kit to his car, but alas the box just collected dust in his garage. On parting ways i assured him the box would not suffer the same fate in my hands, and the next morning, to even my surprise, i got up and started pulling the interior off so i could fit the kit.

With lots of swearing, a little help from write ups by the boys on here and a small jar of angel tears, i finally got the delete kit fitted and sealed up. after a water test or ten i put the liner and interior panels back in and admired my work. (See first pic)

After organising a group buy for the hyperflow engine covers, i met up with 9lives and he mentioned the silvervision globes to me, or i too him, it was so bloody long ago i can't remember. Either way i added silvervision globes to the front and rear. I can't tell you how much difference these made to the front lights. The contrast to the black paint was fantastic.
