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.
C'mon y'all, get with it.

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.
#63 of 75 2010 Legacy Transmission question
Dec 24, 2009 (12:04 pm)
I have a new Legacy2010 - 3.6R was wondering if anyone has experienced any transmission slip issues when turning left or right? It does not seem to be an issue when going straight. Thanks.

Thoughts on 3.6r power. 1. The engine is a redesign and enlargement of the 3.0 and gained less on the bore diameter than on the stroke, thus limiting increased valve size potential. 2. With only a five speed automatic, good fuel economy becomes more difficult. Tuning an engine for economy sometimes hampers peak power development. 3. The engine has considerable power potential, the foregoing notwithstanding. Direct fuel injection is one option, as is a turbocharger. I assume that the block and crank can be upgraded at a cost. 4. Subaru may intend the engine for users seeking refinement and smoothness over raw power. 5. Greater power sometimes dictates stronger drivetrain parts, thus increasing cost significantly, which may become a marketing issue.

Fuel economy on a friends new 3.6R seems much better than my 3.0R; perhaps as much as 2 or 3 mpg better is indicated at 55 mph on the same road.
