second thought not positive that's correct because you have an sti, my bad. But regardless the place you take it to should know.

You do not "have" to use synthetic although it is ok to do so.
Your owners manual has all the information you need regarding oil types and amounts, that is the first place you should look.
And I hope you're going to a dealer or real shop for service and not a Jiffy Lube or similar place. Horror stories abound about those.

I'm pretty sure you can go to www.mysubaru.com and give them your VIN, and get a free owners manual.

5 liters (4.8) is what manual states. Fumoto Valve FTW, do it yourself
