    Boost?

    The owner before me had set the boost to minimum and now my oil pressure drops every time I ride in nuetral or clutch in. just doesnt seem healthy. My subaru dealership told me there was nothing they could do to adjust the turbocharger or the boost. I would not be the one to know what to do or where to go, so any help?

    Boost has nothing to do with your oil pressure.

    If you have an oil light coming on, fix that issue before doing anything else. If it's not the sender, find the cause of the problem. When you say "oil pressure drops" does that mean the pressure is normal when idling? You have a pressure gauge? Or are you getting a light?

    The only way to properly adjust the boost is an engine management program and a tuner who knows what they are doing. I suggest taking the car to a known tuner in the Subaru world around you and have them look at the oil issue.

    Oil pressure will always drop when you clutch in or go to idle. Driving pressure is 70-80psi warm and at idle 20-30psi warm. Read the link I posted about how to ask a question. You have not even listed what car you have, mods and detailed description of the problem.
