    In a turbocharged Subaru motor, those are the UOA results I have seen. Explains why it would look like coffee pouring out of my engine after 3k.

    Let makes this a simple/cheap diagnostic solution... dump your oil and fill it with Shell Rotella T6 (nice and cheap at walmart or Advance Auto) which is 5w40. I use it in my 2011 and it has not blown up. I used to see some light smoking from the car when I bought it (acura dealer prob used wrong motor oil). Now I am golden.
