A lot of time the search functions are useless, especially on an established board here like this. Many people lists there mods in tag or signature lines and you get all of their lame messages as a result of your search.

This Newb could have had 1/2 dozen responses/opinions on what he asked instead of lame responses telling him to "Search".

No offense Kevin, but how would SOD service and/or sales people have answered his question had he called you or stopped in to the dealership?

We arent trying to be rude towards you. Its just when I posted my first response there were 3 different threads started by you. Each one asked approx. 1-3 different questions which most if not all were explained in great detail under a sticky or a mere search away. After a while of floating around here your will notice that certain topics arise weekly. Many of these topics are covered in great great detail throughout the website known as NASIOC. Its not till you see this trend that it bothers you. Most ppl are fed up with 50 ?s that are covered 100 times. I think what im trying to get at is that knowledge is better learned, rather than handed on a silver platter. Im still a newb to alot of folk, but I have learned from those before me and intend to pass on what I have learned.

To try and answer to original questions...
If you look at the IC hose (under the IC) on a stock WRX, it's a black plastic Y pipe with according style bellows. This causes restriction and turbulence.
By replacing them with aftermarket or STi, it's a smooth larger pipe.

As for full synthetic, it's probably a personal preference. I know Mits. makes a big deal about the evo comming from the factory with Mobil1 Syn, but Sub doesn't. It's probably a personal preferences. And there are many opinions on when and how to switch.
I've also seen postings that the synth will lead to/or show leaks, that while your under your warrantee can be fixed by the dealer.
My personal choice is synth, only because it passes thru the turbo, and heat is one of the major break downs in oil viscosity, which synth is less likely to happen. It usually doesn't cost that much more for Mobil1 Synth over normal grades. If you do it yourself, it's about $15-$20 more. If you have a shop do it, its about $25-$30 more.

Not sure about increasing boost with out some form of computer(PCM) enhancements. I thought it was fixed at 14.7(??)PSI, depending on altitude and accuracy of measuring device, he may think he's hitting 15??

if ur tired of it, simply dont click on it, theres a reason for a title, i wasnt around when all the ?'s i asked were brought up and ive been on here two months now, i read all of the FAQ's in the "titles" of forums that may match what im looking for, nothing, thanks a lot tho. Wow, i am amazed by this.... seriously amazed, NASIOC forum and a guy cannot get ?'s answered by fellow, more experience impreza owners. What is this forum then? what is the 2.0L Turbo Tech forum for? Why is a SOD representative on here? why is this a Impreza forum? Why are there so many different divisions on this forum? OOOOOh i know, because there are many questions to be asked, im sure i could have looked that up in Search tho. Bah...

Just saw your second reply about the 15psi. He's using an MBC or Manual Boost Controller. It bleeds off the control line to allow the turbo to boost higher. I'm not a big fan of MBCs or ABCs without additional management for the fuel. It can result in your car running too lean.

Ok maybe the search function is partially useless, but the Stickys and FAQ are very useful. They are something I didnt even notice them my 1st few months here, I asked trivial questions and got "the search" answers. Then I learned cruise the topics that are open and read the info already there, and then if I could not or did not find what I wanted to know then I would ask. That is a normal pattern of learning there is no since in skipping the part where ppl are allowed to learn on there own. That is a problem with modern society, its not required or encouraged to be able to seek out info that is present. Instead we want it now not after a few paragraphs or hours now now now. I myself do this all of the time, and I witness this all of the time. Knowledge comes with time and the desire for said knowledge.

It's my job to educate people everyday about subaru and their products, I dont mind.

What I do mind is that there are technical forums created to help lessen this situation of people constantly asking questions on how to modify their vehicles.

If you came and said "look guys, I've searched all around, and I can't seem to find a good answer on how to do "X" " then I really wouldnt have an issue with someone asking questions.

What I keep seeing from some is the constant asking of questions on how to do whatever to his/her car without actually done any research into the subject and simply asking the people here in TXIC (a non-technical forum)

Question every now and then = good
Constant questions without research = "do a search noob!"

In silverspool's case, I remember him not only two weeks ago trying to sell off parts of his car in order to make a car payment... I wouldnt exactly be trying to spend money modify my car if I were in that situation. what if one of your mods caused damage to your vehicle?

Bah, I am gonna put my .02 in.

First of all, it is THAT easy to do a search. It takes about 5 min to figure out how to use it to its max potential.

And believe me, it gets that annoying after awhile of being on the boards, and seeing that people are just TOO LAZY to search. Call me an ass, but thats how I see it, it takes too much effort for them to actually do some work and search and read for a bit.

And on of the best things about searching for something and reading a bunch of threads in the process......you generally learn ALOT. Not only do you eventually find out wha you were looking for, but you also generally find alot of other stuff that is usefull.

So instead of making it look like your too selfish and womanlike, go ahead and TRY doing a simple search.

Sorry I am such an *******, hopefully you wont hate seeing me at wingstop

I have to agree with this! You sometimes find out information you're not looking for that might be of more value!
