Is it safe to power stall the AT turbo (to build boost) occasionally in a 0-60 run?
2008 at xt ltd. Any potential problems with the transmission?

By doing so your putting additional heat and stress on the tranny.
Your intentionally slipping the tranny causing friction material to wear faster and tranny temps to climb rapidly.
At the very least get yourself a transmission cooler.

I'll let others comment as too how long a Subaru transmission can take that abuse. I bought a stick so I don't need to find out :)
