Its cleaning varnish deposits. No VM on newer transmissions, even if there were one it would get sucked into the intake and burned while running not the engine oil sump.

hjones, As long as 90% of all trips are over 7 miles, then fewer acids are formed, so less chance for sludge, and longer lasting oil. Walmart has it for $27 for 5 quart jug, or walmart.com will ship it to you. Good choice on oil, but M1 EP at wal

Someone else might comment on this, but I seem to remember cam seals are also something to look @. My friends WRX needed them @ 100K and probably should be reviewed. Once again, I'm not sure if it is relevant to this engine

The oversized filter won't harm anything but it's not going to help anything either. I guess I'm not understanding what the point is in leaving the filter on for 4 OCIs, in your case that would be four years. I don't know any filter manufacturer that

Not sure what Western Digital and others do, but my old LaCie one was basically just an off-the-shelf Seagate hard drive with a pretty case on it. When the PSU for it went bad, I just opened it up, pulled out the drive, and stuck it inside my PC.

For the timing belt on our 9-2x (rebadged WRX), I opted for the Gates TCK328 kit which included the belt, all of the necessary pulleys, and the tensioner. It had excellent instructions and also included Loctite as well as a spacer to ensure correct

I got a house a little ways out in the sticks. I have a well, and the water is just on the lowest side of hard. The magnesium is up there some and leaves stains on the toilets. I wanted to know what type of systems others have on their houses.
