Ive got that top engine tool, works good. The best place to go on a 2002 outback is to pull off the pcv valve line which goes into the throttle body after the air cleaner but before the throttle plate. The tool has a ball valve on it to meter the flow, you barely have to crack it or you will flood the engine out, you can see the fluid flow through the line as a reference. The tool comes with a hanger to hang the bottle above the engine so I suspended it and worked the valve while moving the throttle linkage with my other hand. You need to idle the engine higher than normal or the engine will bog down when the fluid goes in. Using the pcv line input will hit every cylinder because its before the throttle plate, the brake booster line is on the left manifold so it would not get all the cylinders. In order to use the tool you need a bottle of the subaru top engine cleaner or the subaru carbon clean as the tool fits those bottles. After you use the bottle save it and you can fill it with seafoam or whatever cleaner you want.
