Yes Forester is a bit different, also it likely has an extra nipple for the oil cooler.

I did see a capped off line near thermostat. It came with a lower mileage ej25d in the trunk that was pulled apart. It supposed to be good and just needing gaskets etc...seemed to shift fine and road smooth. This one put me straight into the high mileage club 236k
