"Replaced the original catalyst after 248 000 miles. ECL light went out and has stayed off. Reading the computer readings with my equipment the catalyst is working within specifications as required." posted by: putterer on July 5, 2014

"This set of catalytic converters fits my 03 Forester but just barely. Everything back of the cat moved forward 1/2 putting the rubber hangers at their absolute limit. The rear gasket provided was a flange-type instead of a donut. The cats use full circle round heat shields. The one in front is fine but the one in back hits the heat shield for the resonator. The shield has to be in place so the only solution is to slit it and pull it away from the cat heat shield." posted by: cheburashka on June 3, 2014 view all 2 reviews

"Installed on my 2000 forester S model hardest part is getting the old one off used dremel and angle grinders takes quite a while but worth it as the car has 130k miles and the dealership wants over $2000 for the parts and labor. Gets it through the inspections and keeps it on the road. Used the same eastern catalytic brand with my 1999 subaru legacy sedan which helped me keep it on the road for over 320k miles before retiring it." posted by: rustybolt on April 27, 2014

"Like I said this bolted right up. I had hoped that with my sheet metal experience that I could modify the factory heat shield to fit...not happening! Don t waste your time. Other than that I love it. Installed my O2 sensors life is great." posted by: Colorado Joe on March 30, 2014 view all 12 reviews

You know why everyone loves a Subaru Forester. It's powerful and versatile, and it fits any busy lifestyle perfectly. But your compact SUV shouldn't be all about muscle and utility. It should also be safe for the environment. This is where the Subaru Forester catalytic converter comes in. The science behind the catalytic converter is that it takes the exhaust gas coming from your Subaru Forester's engine and reignites it to further reduce emissions. Think of it as your car's very own garbage dispenser and recycler. It takes out the unnecessary gas from your engine, segregates the harmful emissions, before it completely shoots out exhaust gas to the tailpipe. So make sure you replace that busted cat with a heavy-duty catalytic convert to prevent your Subaru Forester from spewing harmful garbage out of its system and into the environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • Are new OE catalytic converters the only kind of cats that are legal for use in California?
    Answer: According to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), there are two kinds of catalytic converters that are currently legal for use in the state. These are the new original equipment and new aftermarket converters. Unlike OE cats, there are a few conditions before a new aftermarket cat is legal for use. Aside from being tested by the ARB, it also has to be exempted under the new procedures that were enforced after 2009.
  • Can a Subaru Forester run without a catalytic converter?
    Answer: Technically, yes it can. But legally, it shouldn't. Although a damaged or missing catalytic converter will not keep a car from running, there are still other things to worry about aside from a stalled vehicle, like a suspended smog certification. In severe cases, fines up to $10,000 could be charged to anyone who deliberately takes out a catalytic converter from a vehicle.
  • What are the signs of a faulty catalytic converter?
    Answer: One of the most noticeable signs of a failing cat con is reduced exhaust flow. If air flow is blocked at the Subaru Forester's tail pipe, then that's a telltale sign of a clogged up catalytic convert. Other symptoms include weekend engine power, increased emissions, reduced fuel economy, or a combination of all three.
  • What kind of catalytic converter should be installed on a Subaru Forester?
    Answer: The kind of catalytic converter will depend on the Subaru Forester's year model and the fuel it runs on. While the three-way and three-way + air converters are used on most gasoline-powered cars, the two-way converter should be installed only on diesel-powered engines. For example, a 2011 Subaru Forester should only be fitted with a two-way convert because of its high-powered diesel engine. On the other hand, the 2009 Subaru Forester XT, which runs on premium gasoline, can only be fitted with either a three-way or three-way + air converter.
