New to subaru what to check?

Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased my first scooby, it's a 2004 blobeye wrx wagon. It's got 112k on her and has never been modified apart from a prodrive rear box? Question is what things should I check over for a health check before I start adding more Bhp, want to make sure the engine is healthy before I do anything to her but not sure what common faults the subaru's have.

Check out opie oils online, lots of people use them and the prices are good. A decent 5w40 fully synth will be fine for the engine. The boxer engines are tough but can get rod knock if abused or ran low on oil.

The gearbox and diff need 75/90 and again any decent oil should do, different people swear by different products
