    Hey guys. I’m not so new to Subaru but new to the forum. I’m at the point of my journey where I have realized how much of a lego box subarus are (Maybe why we like them so much, eh? 🤔😂) To reiterate from my introductory post; I’m getting ready to swap my xt with a 6mt/R180 3.9FD from a JDM MY07...

    Has anyone else had an issue where acceleration seem fine until you are trying to accelerate from a set speed or rpm, and it seems like the engine is hesitating? It feels like it wants to go but it might be drowning for a second or so? I am trying to figure out if this is abnormal, or it just...

    Hello Everyone, So, I've had my 2014 3.6R Outback for almost 3 years now and it just crested 123k miles. All maintenance has been kept up to date.

    Our 2012 CVT went out this past March. Inside 10 years but over 100k miles so it did not get the extended warranty replacement. I offered to cut my losses and trade in the busted rig for a new one off the lot and the dealership refused. As those who have been through this before know they also...

    Today I was driving and my car got stuck in 4th gear (manual 5 speed 2.5 dohc). I had just recently had this issue and thought I fixed it. I tried pushing it out but it stayed stuck in gear and now has a ridiculous amount of play on the shifter.
