Hi this is super random but I have been online for literally 2 days now trying to figure out how to fix my car. I have a 2009 Legacy and just put a mid priced air filter on her. ... and she hates it. I can get it running but it dies after about 15 or 20 seconds. If i have the AC on full blast i can keep it running a bit longer but i'm totally confused about why it would be doing this. I have quadruple checked all hoses, gaskets, clamps, etc. I'm thinking about heading out again in a bit to screw with the idle. But yeah. If you'd hit me u[p i'd really appreciate it.

You either don't have the airbox complete latched (It can be a PITA) or one of the vacum hoses came off during the installation and you missed it. This is fairly common when doing an air filter replacement.

Yeah, I was going to suggest the MAF sensor connector or a vacuum hose.
Definitely do not fiddle with the idle.

I don't think you can actually adjust the idle on any of the new electronically controlled cars these days.

I 2nd the vacuum hose theory.
That happened to a Subaru Crew member when they did their intake.
Look closely, even disassemble and reassemble the whole intake, I bet that's it.

For a car called a 3.6R as in RACEFor this car "R" means Retired:-) You got slow 0-60 and "comfortable" ride. Some kind of Subary Buick.
#59 of 75 R stands for regular

Sort of obvious.

The 3.6R is so slow. Come on! Some one else measured 0-60 in 7.1
A second shorter than the charger hemi. And the HEMI and infiniti don't have grip like the Legacy.

Motor Trend measured the 3.6R (Limited version, I think) Outback as having a 0-60 time of 7.1 seconds.
The somewhat lighter 3.6R Legacy is a bit faster - I think I recall seeing 6.5 seconds in a Road & Track article. I would also guess that the 2.5 turbo Legacy with the 6MT would be a bit faster still. But 6.5 seconds is not bad...

Motorweek reached 60mph in just 5.9 seconds with their GT/Manual.
That's quick for such a large sedan.
