Bolted everything back together, changed the oil three more times with new oil filters each time. Primed the turbo and started her up, been about 100 miles and no codes have apeared and she seems to be running better than before.

O i also flushed the coolant, Without the Conditioner (suby dealer told me that you shouldnt use it with the STI ). Thanks again to everyone

keep us posted on this one....
