    Thought I would report back here to let you all know I have restored
    newsgroup capabilities to my laptop.

    Been a hell of a year, and newsgroups were of a low pririty to me, Lost my
    brother Feb-2008, father-in-law My-2008 and a assortment of friends and
    accuainenences. but now I am back.

    My name is Steve, I am a ASE Certified Master Mechanic that landed (happily)
    in a Subaru Dealer 3 years ago after a 4.5 year stint in Hell (lets call
    that "Firestone")
    I have just completed 6 weeks of Subaru training, and that means I still
    don't know Sh*t, but have the ability to learn. I work in a small dealership
    with 3 other Subaru Techs, 2 that are Seinior master techs and 1 that can do
    the work, but don't want to do the ase tests.

    I will chime in if I feel I have something worth saying.

    Good to see you still here Carl.. Is Tegger or Jim Beam still around?

  2. Sorry to hear of your losses.

    Glad to see you're back!

    Remind us what part of the country you're in.

    One thing I was just wondering about yesterday. (had to drain oil from
    SIL's car due to massive overfilling - don't ask) How does PCV work on a
    turbo-charged engine like Soobs? NA is easy due to intake suction - but
    with forced induction.....

    Waaay ofer here on the left coast (Oregon)

    I don't see any real diffefence between the trubo's and the NA as far as the
    PCV system, the turbo still has suction in the intake at idle and low RPM.
    i'll ask the oldtimers at work tommorow.

  4. Ah, so maybe there is a 'check valve' or something to prevent forced air
    going the other way...uh, well, that's what the valve does anyway so....

  5. Nice to see you back again. Sorry about your losses.

    Tegger hangs around in the Toyota group and rec.autos.tech even more.
