Hey just wondering if anyone has any spec info on the FSTi steering racks.
I have been searching this forum, that forum and all over the net to no avail.
I'm wondering if the ratio is different to the XT Foz ?

Alright after posting I did sniff on to some information where one fellow mentions the FSTi racks to be the 15:1 ratio just like WRX STi racks.
Can anyone confirm this for the SG's?
Also have read on here that the 02 -04 WRX STi are a straight fit to MY06 Foresters, but I wonder how it works when taking a JDM 2006 FSTi ? You would think this would be a straight fit to an AUZ FXT ?
Has anyone done one ?
cheers

The ‘FSTi’ never came to Australia, so you’ll have a hard time searching for that sort of stuff.

Yes, the WRX STi rack is either a 15:1 ratio across the entire rack, or you can get the ‘quick rack’ which has a 13:1 ratio, and is HIGHLY sort after (read: expensive and hard to find).

The XT Foz rack has a 19:1 centre ratio, and a 15:1 outer ratio on either side, so the centre is as vague as a woman on valium! :shock:

So ...

You, we, with an SG Foz, can fit a WRX GD STi rack into our Foz (like I have), and that is a sweet mod! Or, search longer and harder ($) for a ‘quick rack’ from a ‘Spec C’ vehicle.

Search for the part number, I think it is FE440?

Edit: oops ... yep Bram was correct, typo fixed! :oops:

STi Foz ratio spec is 15:1
The part number is 34110SA090 for the later model STi Foz, 06+ which has a revised collar mount on the cross member - same as 06 XT

Thanks Carsubie.
So do you think its 15:1 across the whole rack ? Or it's still a variable 15:1 / 19:1 ratio?

And Craig when you say Spec B, do you mean applied B from the Spec C link you listed ? And so are these also meant to be a straight fit into SG's ?

Same ratio across the whole FSTI rack. Very direct and responsive when compared to an XT
