Hey everyone!
Thought I'd make a post and make my presence known lol

I am a long time forester owner (previously owned MY00 NA and a MY01 GT back in 2005-2006) but has been a long stint since my recent acquirement MY09 XTP.
Used to be a member of GT Rydaz back in the day and my username was FR34KD, and cruised around the Newcastle stomping grounds with Cotty, Ben and Bob (not sure if they are still members here or if they remember me).

Anyway, so far all I've done was put on some ultrex diff backs and a GFB respons BOV.
Will be planning a few more modification over time but not in a rush.
Seems as though the shockies are on their way out, so that will be next on the list.
Looking for something to give a slight drop (not too much, as I navigate some dodgey roads doing snake catching for work) and comfort is paramount.
Open to suggestions.

other things on the list will be:
1. Dump pipe
2. slightly bigger turbo
3. caliper and disc upgrade
4. TBE
5. tune

Well I'll leave it at that for now, and hopefully become more of a contributing member.

Chat later
Shaun

My XT Premium isn't diesel :)
My previous ride was a Holden Captiva 7 Turbo diesel, and boy did that handle like a boat. Going to the foz made me feel like I was driving a go kart lol

The snakes don't seem to mind (no real behaviour difference in them when I release).

The Ultrex mufflers are very subtle and not loud at all. Just gives the awesome burble and barely hear it at idle :)
