Default Does 04 WRX 2.0 have Banjo Bolt Turbo Filter?


New to posting but very familiar to reading. I bought an 04 WRX wagon with 133k miles about 4 months ago from the previous owner that I know who has had the car since 60k. He took decent car of the car with regular ~3k-ish synthetic changes but due to its age and mileage I am going through taking care of and preventing common issues.

I have a question:

Can anyone give me a definite answer to whether or not the 2004 WRX 2.0L has the turbo oil filter screen in the banjo bolt?

I know the 04 STi does and that all the 2.5L (including the AVCS motors) do up to a certain point in 06 but can't get a good answer on the 2.0. Mine is on its 2nd turbo since 60k so I'd like to extend its life as long as possible.

Interested too, as I have an '04. Sadly, I'm no help to finding the answer.

Good writeup says only 2.5:

SOA bulliton stating ALL turbo engines:

Says '04's and older had them, doesn't state the engine:
.... but later in the thread it says it's just the STI.

Would like a confirmation though... seems to be just the EJ25Ts..
