    Oil changes

    for an 04-05 STI. Do you do them yourselves? I will be changing my own every 3-5k. How difficult is it? Location of the oil filter? Maybe someone could make a picture tutorial for a sticky?

    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond it’s compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.

    How difficult is it to change oil? About as difficult as tightening Velcro shoes. Jack up the car on the drivers side and slip a jack-stand under so you don't die, take off the splash guard. You will then see both your drain plug and oil filter. Then drain and refill. That's it. Change every 3k, synthetic or not. Good luck.
