Looking for something a little more advanced to allow varied lookup. Anyone have an idea if something like this would work. PWM sounds like how the factory system varies the lookup, so using this to vary the lookup should almost be a straight plug and play shouldn't it? Keeping in mind I'm no electronic genius but the theory sounds plausible.

So will this work on 08 in short periods (how short)? or is there an other way around this and i just haven't come across the thread?

thanks

G'day & Welcome Miles - sorry but I can't advise you as I have MY'03. Even so, I never leave it switched on for long as the resistors can get quite warm.

08 SG Forester yes it works if it's a MPT auto, but not a 08 SH Foz. If it's a VTD needs to be done slightly differently

Fandizzle is good to ask about this. Be patient for a reply, he's often away for extended periods

NachaLuva

First off thanks for the help....

Not sure what MPT auto, 08 SH Foz or VTD are. can I find it out with the vin#?
Can you guide me in the right direction and how do find out what I have out of these three? I know I have a FHI Full-time AWD 4EAT tranny if that helps.

I used to working on jeeps! I'm sure I search but I have you on the line.

We get used to using all the acronyms lol
SG Forester is your model of Forester from 03-08
SF is the model before 97-02
SH 09-13 & SJ 14> are the models after yours

Foz is just a nickname for Forester, like Leggy is short for Legacy & Lib is short for Liberty (what the Legacy is called in Australia)

You've found MPT (Multi Plate Transfer) & VTD (Variable Torque Distribution) are the 2 types of auto, plus there's CVT in later models.

VCD (Vehicle Dynamics Control) is the Subaru stabilty control system

XMode is available on some later CVT models. It's an upgraded version of VDC, very very good for slippery offroad or steep downhill conditions

SubieLiftOz is my lift kit business, specializing in just Subarus. Feel free to shoot me a PM, I can definitely help you lift your Foz
