Hey guys, new to the car scene, just picked myself up a 1997 forester, EJ20 with a factory turbo.  I am wanting to start modding the car, with a slight power upgrade (nothing massive wanted) 


little background, the car is from my parents and all it needs is a new radiator which i will do first. Car has been treated well since its my parents and they dont hoon too much i would imagine. 20 and want to start getting into the car scene and starting on this because I dont mind if I dont do the best job. Doing it for fun and experience.


Mods ild like to do at some stage ( chassis, SF5 )


- Blow off valve

- Higher PSI on the turbo (if possible)

- New exhaust system - not for loudness, for better airflow. 

- Better injectors 

- Better Fuel Pump if needed 

A Cold air induction with a pod filter

- Fuel pressure regulators

- New coils

- New sparks


If can be done without much hassle 


- Bigger turbo (not massive just enough to hold out more but still with a quick-ish spool up)  

- Bigger inter-cooler 


Any feedback if much appreciated and will be taken on board, please share photos of your angry toasters or any comments you have  :)


photos will come if post goes anywhere
