    Crawford's response to my email.

    A few days ago I had asked them if getting an air oil separator on my year (2012). Obviously I asked about idcs and let them know with my tune I was at 100-104% at 6000-6500 rpms. If I should get a cbe, if it was worth it as well as what type of oil they feel is best ( told them I and most here used rotella t6).

    Their response:


    Hey Evan,
    Yes, an AOS is a good idea on every Subaru motor regardless of the year. If you are asking about the injector duty cycle then it is fine... unless you want to spend money. You can get larger injectors but they will not give you more of anything but take away instead. You will lose fuel mileage and potentially some power. If you put on a larger turbo then you will need larger injectors.

    A cat back on the 08 and up will not give you any more power just a different sound / look.

    Motul is the best oil... hands down.

    They may feel fine tuning >100% IDCs

    If the injectors are properly tuned, you will have similar gas mileage to stock injectors. The same amount of fuel (regardless of injector size) is needed to target ~14.7 in CL and whatever is in your Primary OLF table.

    I am thinking of selling the car to pick up a last year Evo x. The new ones I think are going to be very expensive as well as adding electric motors may cause some major issues. The upsides to the wrx are obvious, especially got my bad back how much more comfortable the seats are. Motor strength is not an issue, etc. however, the x has NO trunk space, less mileage, is less to insure though(go figure)... Interior is about the same. Anyway, I don't know what I'll do, just exploring my options.

    Overuse from detailing? If yes, I dealt with the same thing, and it's really frustrating. I usually only work 10-15 hours a month now, but I still have sciatic nerve issues. No bueno.

    I had one before and I loved it, I wound up with some family issues over someone I got to work on it, he got drunk and torn the clutch up in it, it never felt the same so I sold it. For me the brakes, seats, suspension are all better right off the bat. Engine is stronger and I just really loved the car. I really like my wrx as well too though, so that's why I'm just thinking about it. Nothing certain.

    Back on topic, if I keep the wrx I'm going to add elh to the engine and that will likely be it, but I wanted to find out what Crawford recommended just in case since they are a big name in the subbie world.
