Prolong as in the engine additive? If so, NO. Don't use that crap. If the stuff was so great engine oil companies would add it to their oil and sell it as "now containing xxxx additive". Just use a good synthetic oil and you should be ok. In fact use all synthetic lubricants in the car.

New SUBARU Dealer on 104th

Never just turn off a turbo charged car. You have to let it idle for at least a minute, more if you were really working the turbo. The best thing you could do is get a turbo timer. It'll save you the hassle of having to wait while the turbo cools off by running the engine until a predetermined time is met and then turning off.

I can't help with your manual hunt.

I have found Subaru to be helpful when asked. Try contacting them at the following site, (button on the lower right hand side "contact us"):
http://www.subaru.com/home.html

The last time I tried this sort of thing it took them a couple of weeks to respond, but it paid off. I was given a name and email address to the correct person/department within Subaru. Let us know how your search is going.
