The 2009 Forester is great for kids. Fill is up with stuff and away you go. But, it’s not exactly an exciting ride. Even the XT turbo version lacks serious “oomph.” The guys over at Pacific Import Auto (PIA) in Tacoma, Wash., found the remedy. Recently, they upgraded their shop 2009 Forester to full STI running gear: 300hp boxer motor, DCCD all-wheel drive system, the works. The result is downright evil… with still room enough for the kids. How cool is that?
