Re: Requests for Base Car list updates here

Is there any chance of getting a 1998 Subaru Forester added to the list?
Information on all of the Forester model years can be found here: http://www.cars101.com/subaru/forest..._archives.html


1998 Subaru Forester
- 2.5 liter 4 cylinder 16 valve DOHC Boxer engine
- Horsepower: 165 hp and 162 foot pounds of torque at 4000 rpm,
- Fuel system: Multi-port sequential fuel injection, distributorless ignition with platinum plugs
- Curb weight: 3020#(5MT)/3120#(4EAT)
- Overall length: 175.2"
- Overall width: 63.8"
- Overall height: 62.8" (65.0" w/ crossbars)
- Ground clearance: 7.5"
- Turning radius: 38.3"
- Wheelbase 99.4"


This could also apply to the 99-02 models as the only revision was to the engine:

1999+
- Phase II 2.5 liter 4 cylinder, 16 valve SOHC Boxer engine
- Horsepower: 165 hp, 166 foot pounds of torque at 4000 rpm
- Fuel system: multi-port sequential fuel injection, distributorless ignition with platinum plugs.

They came with 205/75R15's and 215/60R16's from the factory, but have been known to fit as much as a 265/35R18 R-comp with nothing more than slight fender lip massaging and camber adjustments.
The suspension is the same configuration as the Subaru Impreza but with long struts and springs than the corresponding Impreza chassis (GC/GF8).

If you need any more information I can gladly provide it to make the process easier.
