    I let mine drain for around 30 min last time. Question: Did you heat it up first by driving? If not you may be there a while.

    Also a tip: When adding the fluid, dump in 3 qts drive it around the block very slowly then come back and check it. Wrx trannys have a way of "finding fluid" and you don't want to overfill the tranny.
