Im wondering if i can put 70 or 100 watt bulbs all around? When i bought my car one foglight wasnt working and it was b/c the guy had a 100 watt bulb in it and it was blowing the fuse. Can i run a higher watt like 100 or 70 and just replace the fuse?"

Stock wattage is 55w, I'm not sure if replacing the fuse would fix it or not.

go to electrical and lighting forum. A lot of info can be had just by reading in there. I would not put any 100W bulb on the subaru wiring harness. Good chance of melting wires. If you are dead set on doing so, get a relay and run your own harness for the bulbs.
