New member in Shelbyville, IN. Any other Hoosiers here?
Owner of a 2005 Forester XT, Cayenne Red Pearl, 5MT. Owned it since 2009, now has 206k+ miles on it. Bone stock.
Unfortunately, a troublesome last couple years ended with zero compression in cyl 2, likely cracked valve. My logical side says ditch and move on, but I have loved this car since day one!
So right now I'm keeping it, driving it just locally a little, looking into new engine. Now as a play car, I got interested in making it a bit more off-roadish...bringing me to this forum. Hoping to learn a lot, get some ideas!

G'day & Welcome aboard @rwitte

You will certainly get lots of ideas here; your wallet may be the only restriction! :)

Hi @rwitte have fun with your play car and keep us posted!
There's some pretty wild builds here if that's your hankering, money's pointless when you're gone anyway ;)
