I want to get a forester but having trouble which one is the best buy. I want a 2litre car which has the most power output between the '00 and the '03 versions. I'm also curious if mods are easily available for both cars. Noob. Please help

Pretty sure that'll be the sohc 2.5 in whatever Forester you buy in those years. The only other engine would be turbo and honestly I don't even have a clue if your market would have any. I'm no expert on the "newer" stuff but whatever you look at will have the sohc 2.5. The only thing to look out for are external headgasket leaks. I believe the driver side was more suseptible.

No, 2.0l's were available elsewhere in foresters. Non turbo too. I have no idea what was on offer for the African market though.
