I did the TB Coolant bypass mod and can't imagine that a lot of air entered the system. Still, I would like to be sure that I am right.

Is there a procedure on bleeding the XT? Sorry, I am new to Subaru's and would have done it a number of ways on any other vehicle.

I believe that there are two radiator caps as well so I am not sure which one(s) would be involved in this process if at all.

Thank you!

According to the NASIOC guide:
9.) Use the towel to carefully open the Turbo Coolant Resevoir
How do you prevent from splashing all over??
There is a cap marked 'H' on the coolant line isn't it better to open that slightly while the engine warms up and if there are no bubbles coming out and coolant starts pouring out it means there is no more air in the system?
Cheers :)
