    Did an oil change, no oil/water heat exchanger on the WRX anymore?

    Did my first oil change on my new 2011 WRX today and was a little disappointed to find there's no oil-to-water heat exchanger on this engine. I know they're not that effective but still, too bad.

    Anyone know when this started? I thought they used to have them, but was it only on the STi engines or maybe only on the EJ20s?
