Also, I was looking into t6 for my car, but have seen that only 5w-30 is spec'd in the manual and it has to be eco both of which, t6 is not. I don't want to have watrentee issues god forbid with the piston issue with these motors. Which is odd as time after time people post UOA's with good results with t6...

Anyways, you guys doing anything Tom? I may be up in putnam valley, perhaps a mini meet / lunch?

T6 since day one, my dealer replaced a long-block and 2 turbos with T6 in the case, (not because of T6,LOL), just as long as the obvious stuff is in place, the dealer wont get over the top tech with ****, like check oil weight..they look for neglect, which if you have half a brain you can get around anyway..the dealer ruins more cars than we ever could, of course you just saw this first hand! ... if your not tuned, and change oil frequently, it really doesn't matter what you use..

And with the piston issue, that's subarus boner, and problem to begin with, they left no room for the rings to expand, even more of a reason to go with the protection of a 40w+, now I heard they're letting customers use aftermarket pistons and keeping warranty! also, they recommend 5-30 because it allows for better MPGs, and they sell a 5-30, these motors shear down 5-30 pretty quick, of course I dont recommend to do any of the above, its just my opinion..
