Also use E10 gas. Ethanol has a cooling effect which allows the ECU to maintain ignition timing tables. Using ethanol-free gasoline may give better MPG, however, will increase temperature and reduce performance due to retarding the ignition timing.

I've had a lot of turbocharged vehicles over the last 20 years. I've never had an issue with changing the oil at the manufacturer recommended intervals. However, I have seen cases where the recommended oil weight is too thin to adequately protect the turbo. Every car is different, so I'll just keep an eye on this one to see how it does.

Coming from the Subaru world. I still own a 2021 Subaru Legacy XT. Changing the intake and exhaust could cause premature detonation, also known as pinging. Only way around this is to tune for the less restrictive intake and exhaust. So very interested to see how these react to a less restrictive intake and exhaust.
