Ill make this part short as its in the wrong section:
Hi, I'm Nick, this is my first post. Im buying my first Subie in literally a couple hours. Picked up a 2007 WRX TR from a dealer, BONE STOCK!! So excited!
Heres my question. I just spent an hour on the "what kind of oil" thread. Lots of great information and points. Ive been using Valvoline since i bought my first car when I was 16. Ran synpower in my Talon TSi, Capri xr2, and valvoline max-life in my explorer, dakota, grand am, corolla, and amigo. I don't mean to open up a whole new can of worms, but is there any reason I shouldn't be using synpower in the wrx? I still need to research the filter thread but I truthfully have never had a problem with k&n or bosch filters. Normally I run 1qt of lucas oil stabilizer in each oil change as well just for added protection and peace of mind. I know that the choice of oil in completely up to me and based on my research and opinions, however if theres any reason synpower and lucas is a bad idea, I need to know before 3pm. The dealer changed the oil 3 days ago but I don't trust what they had put in it. So, as soon as I pick it up, its getting an oil change, new air filter, and a good clay bar/wax (just to say I did).
So far i LOVE this forum. Everyone here seems to be a lot like me.. Crude senses of humor, unlimited sarcasm, good information, and a seemingly friendly atmosphere.. That and we all have the same boxer fetish haha
