99 forester help

I joined a forester forum, but couldn't find my answers in their search.
A few of you have experience with them. So I'll ask you before creating my god awful newbie post there.

My wife just sold her 07 caliber so she could get an old forester.
She went from an 07 with 84k, to a 99 with 194k. And she absolutely loves it!!
She finally is excited for a car she owns.

Here's the questions.
She wants an XT hood and a different grill.
What years fit it? I have searched and always get confused because I'm new to these:/

It will be getting my 11' 17's and my 02 Wrx exhaust from the shed, along with Wrx suspension. Again tho, don't know what all is needed for that swap.

C'mon fozzy guys. Help an old guy out.

Thanks!!!

Don't think they made an FXT in those years...

Probably no FXT in the states at least...I can't see how that 02 WRX exhaust will fit without some welding. But, I remember those foresters came with a scoop on the hood like the RS2.5s did in the states.
What size engine does it have? My dad owned one of these for a short period of time back when they were newer and I can't remember what size engine they had.

Just drop a damn WRX drive line into it...be finished and use a 02 hood scoop and work your body work magic on it...

I don't think ANY wrx exhaust will fit it correctly. Something along the lines of the length and clearance. Looks good. My next step is to get the wife into an NA one as well.

Look into a 04-05 XT hood. Pretty sure they are close enogh to start with.
