You'd be running lean, not rich. And under boost, I find it unlikely it would make a significant difference since you're on speed density.

Well, my plan of attack is:

Shim the relief. See what happens.


Annnnd depending on my next O.A. I may be looking for a new car, something cheap so I can re-bearing the motor. Literally makes no sense. I don't even beat this thing up enough to have a bearing failure at 14k on the motor.

I will say though, I feel like all these issues started happening after switching to Motul 8100. Probably a coincidence, but still, makes me curious.

Yea, I'd say coincidence. At least you can drive your Subaru. I built mine and it's still broken. hahaha

I don't know how much confidence I would place in their fuel dilution readings... I've had some very ethanol-y smelling samples come back with their standard "<0.5%." However, you cut off viscosity....

If you ever want help with bearings, LMK. Guarantee you could have them done in less than a weekend. You'd just need to have all of your gaskets/etc.

I will keep you updated. I'm thinking about swapping back to Rotella T6 to see what happens with the numbers.

It's just weird as hell that on fresh oil, the PSI stays up at 80, but then slowly drops down. I feel like bearings would start low.

What oil filter are you using with the KB header? Only one I know of working is the OEM blue.
