One of the first things Forester owners want to improve is the tinny, stock sounding exhaust. There was a huge demand for Subaru Forester performance exhaust components in 2022, including catless down pipes, high flow cats and turbo back exhausts. The turbo back exhaust was one of the most popular products sold according to Empire Performance’s data. The turbo back exhaust significantly improves the exhaust flow resulting in great power gains at the mid and top end.
There was an obvious demand for better street performance, with many Forester owners opting to replace the stock clutch with an aftermarket organic clutch. The organic clutch plate allows for a higher torque capacity, and due to many performance clutches using graphite casting material, there is a better heat dispersion as well.
Headers / Extractors
Headers were in such high demand in 2022 some suppliers were struggling to supply stock and backorders subsequently filled up. Forester owners were finding that when replacing the stock headers with premium stainless steel extractors, the performance improved significantly. Not to mention, stainless steel is corrosion resistant and they are mandrel bent for maximum flow. Also, opting to get unequal length headers results in a much superior sound.
MCA Suspension products are as popular as ever in Australia, with the red series coilovers proving the most popular suspension for Subaru Foresters in 2022. The high-performance replacement to the standard suspension allows for better handling and flexibility, however as most users are driving on standard streets the greatest advantage is improved comfort.
