^ For what it's worth, I ended up using worm-drive clamps in place of the OEM spring clamps, because they were much easier to install.

That clamp is so hard to get to with the TB on. I tried re-using the oe clamp, and couldn tighten it back. Ended up using the worrm style clamps after installing AOS.

Working as an engineer for a living, I can understand the position of following the published OEM service manual to the last nut and bolt. The engineers and designers used that type of clamp for a reason (even if that reason was "no good reason at all"), and the warranty could be denied if any other style of clamp was used there. Even if the alternate clamp claimed to (or was somehow proven to) meet and exceed the requirements of the original type, there is a good chance that the Subaru engineers did not perform an analysis of the alternate clamp in that location/application and therefore the position will be for Subaru Corporate to deny the warranty claim at their discretion. I know that's BS, but it's the way it has to be. Otherwise the engineers are writing doctoral theses to defend their design every time someone tries to claim that their 'aftermarket' method is better. It's a much better business model (for the manufacturer) to say "it's our way or the highway".

I dont live in Cali you Neck-beard. I have 6 Subarus because I enjoy them, I live where AWD actually gets used 8 months out of the year and I have plenty of space and then some for my Vehicles! By real ride, you mean what? a lifted truck with straight pipes? or a maybe a Camaro with Z28 badges on a RS? Get real guy, you have no idea what other vehicles I own or previously owned, or where I live. Im not going to brag about what else I own or any of that keyboard warrior name calling $hit. I am a Subaru Tech, Im NOT gods gift to the Auto industry like you think you are (lemme guess UTI graduate?). Ive been doing this longer than you have probably been alive. Matter a fact Im willing to bet money on that! So calm down and go back to reading the FSM on how to change an oil filter.
