2002 SUBARU IMPREZA 2.0L 4-cyl Engine Code EJ205 Turbo   
 LUBRICANTS & FLUIDS: Lookup Another Vehicle
Subaru has published Service Bulletin # 02-103-07 that identifies a factory design related problem with premature clogging of the oil mesh screen located inside the oiling system that supplies the turbo charger on all model turbo charged cars.
A clogged screen will result in oil starvation and turbo charger failure. Subaru has since published Service Bulletin #02-110-10R indicating that 2010 MY and prior turbocharged engines continue to require oil and filter change intervals
of 3,750 miles (6,000 km) or 3 3/4 months, while all 2011 MY turbocharged engines have returned to the original requirement of 7,500 miles (12,000 km) or 7 1/2 months, and they are required to use synthetic oil.
Due to the issues outlined in this document, AMSOIL recommends following Subaru drain interval recommendations.
