LIKE a faster first oil change!! and great you pointed out the filter catches things before it goes through the motor. yet theres a beginning and an end to the oil system. and in that system there are 3 oil screens that can also become clogged over time and catch metal shavings when the engine is new. thoughs shavings will stay there forever. and as the motor gets older and older and you forget an oil change here and there, the screens over time could become clogged enough for something to break. thats why you change the oil sooner when new, when the most shavings will occur and change often like subi now tells you to do under 3750. the filter isnt in thoughs 3 spots. therefore the filter will only catch what the screens have let through. unfortunately the screens are super super tiny and you first metal shavings can get caught in the screens. just one more EXAMPLE why you should change sooner.
    No need to call people names. I've asked for proof and you can provide none other than your opinion.

    How is changing your oil going to help if the metal is stuck in the screens already? You're not making sense. Yes, they get clogged. Changing the oil isn't going to help. You need to remove the screens.

    Please provide even one shred of proof other than your opinion to any of your statements. For instance, links to internet articles about it, or posts on other forums from knowledgeable people. Anything.

    The photos of the broken oil pickups tell me nothing. I can link to a thousand photos of failed struts from various cars. What does that have to do with anything? And what does a broken oil pickup have to do with changing your oil? I don't see the correlation.

    and when did i ever say redline the car the first 1000k? if you want to everyday after then so be it. if you want to autox or road race then so be it. we're only talking break-in here. if i recall im the one that said the motor, tranny, rotors and pads all need a different break-in. thats why subi says take it easy for 1000k!!! if they said do a hard break-in, the average person doesnt get what that means. a kid would nail every gear to redline, be doing 100mph and then have to stomp hard on the breaks because of a deer or car or whatever. now he just screwed his clutch, rotors and pads. ive already said this. im not sure how im getting sucked into saying the same things over and over.

    this is pretty simple, try to keep up kiddo.

    your rotors, pads, tranny, clutch, flywheel all need an easy break-in. that means no fast shifting, no shifting above like 4000 rpm, and no hard breaking etc!!

    now your motor, there is nothing wrong with a 2nd or 3rd gear pull at WOT to 4000-5000RPM, let the motor engine break in that gear back down to 2000rpm and repeat. your not using the breaks, your not using the engaged clutch, and your not using the tranny gears or syncros. this allows the rings to flex, scare the cylinder walls and break-in the motor properly so the rings seat. end of story! if subi says dont go over 4k for 1000 miles then fine. but pick 2nd or 3rd gear and do some WOT runs to 4k so the rings flex. BOOM, you did what subi told you to do.
    I worked for Subaru for 2 years, been a tech for 12, and built and raced motorcycles for 4 kiddo. You win, goodbye
    Let's compare notes in 200k miles or so.
