Don't get me wrong, it doesn't look good to be a Subaru Dealer and call your variable valve timing technology the wrong thing (or tell you need to switch oil types). But in the end all of these systems are designed for more or less the same function, whether it is called VVT, AVCS, VTEC, or VANOS, etc.
I agree with that no harm no foul but I paid $100 to have a Subaru tech do a diag on my car and they tell me to run reg. oil in my turbo vehicle when subaru put out bulletin stating all turbo cars should run synthetic oil it just makes me wanna say go F off and give me my $100 back because pep boys could have given me that answer. It's stuff like this that makes people stop going to dealerships.
