[*]High-failure fuel pump[*]High-failure Diesel Particulate Filter[*]A water-to-air intercooler for the turbo that collects condensation when outdoor temps are 32*F +/- a few degrees, resulting in intercooler freezing/thawing, hydrolocking the engine, no-start situations, bent rods, and other nastiness[*]A sketchy emissions system with lots of failure-prone sensors, an exhaust flap that fails regularly, and lots of Check Engine Light scenarios

If Subaru ever brought their diesel engine to the USA, I'd be looking to see if they avoided VW's stupid design mistakes.
It's possible, albeit not a diesel I run air to water intercoolers on a couple cars and have never had trouble. It's most likely the media they use for cooling. Treating it as a regular cooling system would be adequate considering the egt's are most likely cooler than I'm running at high boost.
