Here is a vague list of the Subaru Forester stb specifications or S/tb as it’s also known. I say vague as nobody seems to have a definative list of specifications for this model and even though I have looked at numerous japanese sites for the figures I still cant find a definative answer.
So heres a disclaimer, disclaiming the accuracy of the numbers below and I cant be held responsible if they are incorrect. If you know better, email me.
Subaru Forester S/tb (sports turbo model)
Engine Type: Flat Four – DOHC 16v turbo (EJ20)
Engine Capacity: 1994 cc
Power Output: 250 bhp / 6250 rpm (to Japanese standards, with UK super unleaded, probably 220bhp)
Torque: 229 lbft / 4000 rpm
Transmission: 4 speed AT (4wd) or 5 speed MT (4wd)
Acceleration: (0-62 mph / 0-100kph): 6.6 sec
Max Speed: 112mph (Electronically Limited to 180kph – Its Japanese law)
Imports converted to MPH will have had the limiter removed. (This is done by changing the signal going to the speedo from KPH to MPH by adding a divider of 1.6 (KPH divided by 1.6 = MPH, ie: 100kph / 1.6 = 62mph) this is usually done via a mechanical or electronic device which fools the ecu into thinking its not doing the 112mph limit, thats why Jap import typically have speedos which read 180mph).
FYI: on an airfield track day I have seen 143mph, this was GPS speed.
Acceleration: (1/4 mile): 13.8 secs
Braking: (60-0 mph): 125 ft
