I believe you might have to get the tip extended because the rear bumper on a foz is slightly longer

Yep. Can confirm it will fit as long as the GC is from a GC8 and the Foz is a GT turbo

You want me to fit for you? I might be able to fit you in.

the WRX exhaust is 10cm shorter than the Forester.

you will also need to modify the rear hangers

Are you sure - the Liberty Wagon exhaust is only 7.5cm longer so I doubt the Forester is 10cm, especially when the Forester is just an Impreza underneath..................

im putting my chips on the table. :-)

the rear or tips need to be lengthened by 100mm and rear hangers modified (or running longer exhaust rubbers)

I got a forester exhaust to fit on my vortex :) ( the muffler needs to be moved but it fits :) )

The ozfoz link is only good if you are a member :(

I have heard that the forester exhaust is a little different to the impreza even though they share the same floor pan.

my bad. here is a section quoted

[quote="OzFoz.com"]Will a WRX/STI exhaust bolt onto my turbo Forester?

The dump and centre pipes will generally fit fine. Sometimes you may need to fit a new 02 sensor bung and plug the old one depending upon your year model (turbo WRXs and Foresters up to MY00 have the 02 sensor near the turbo]
