I just bought a 2005 Outback XT w/~102K miles.

Getting the banjo-bolt replaced tomorrow, so I guess we'll see how I did.

Previous owner didn't use synthetic, and either some changes weren't documented or some intervals were closer to 6k miles.

How big a deal is the catalytic converter in the up-pipe?

I was talking to a mechanic at a small local shop today and he didn't think it was a common failure. They also estimated about $450 to replace it with a catless tube and said it would require some tweaking of sensors to prevent the check-engine light / codes.
