Hi guys :waves:

I thought this would be an opportune time to create a journal of my Foz.

Here I'll be documenting the progress of modification.

As some of you may see, this was a previous OzFoz members car from South Australia.
She now lives in Victoria.

Car is utilised as a weekend warrior, primarily driven by me. I am looking for greater fuel efficiency and a little more poke to match the handling modifications already installed.

Coming from a 4cyl BMW E46, I am already enjoying the stock power that the XTP brings. Effortless acceleration through the hills and overtaking at 100kmh is a breeze.

Future plans:
- Intake
- Dump Pipe
- VF46
- Tune

Not looking for outright power figures, but rather greater more linear power delivery right through the range from daily driving, to a spirited cruise.

Model: 09 Forester Premium

Engine
- Process West intercooler

- DBA T3 4000 Front and Rear Rotors
- Project MU Front and Rear Pads
- HEL braided brake lines
- CUSCO brake master brace

Some recent purchases:

03/08/2016 - Kicker 11HS8 Hideaway 8" 150W Subwoofer and Amplifier
27/08/2016 - Thule CS10 Snow Chains
30/08/2016 - Invidia Dump Pipe

After more and more research, I've come to the conclusion that I'm on the hunt for a VF52.

Just waiting till I find one in good condition and reasonably priced before I get them all installed and tuned.

Looks as though I should also be adding a DW65C Fuel Pump to the mix aswell whilst I'm at it...

Some nice addition and a nice subtle wish list.

Hope the car is going well :)

Enjoy the fuel pump install and make sure you're under half tank.

Hey mate, I put a Hideaway in my XTP as well. I'd recommend installing it under the drivers seat, that way you can leave the stock subwoofer under the passenger seat and run both at the same time.
