I imagine I'm not the first to do so, I added them before to my Crosstrek and I needed to splice in resistors. It was a pain so I then removed them and put it a new flasher unit to avoid hyperflash.

Should I expect the same results on the OB? I can't imagine the brains changed that much between models.

The flasher swap won't work on the Gen 5 as the flasher control is integrated on the body control module.

VLED's makes a Triton kit that has plug & play resistors. I'm running the last generation amber kit in the rear position on mine.

I plan to add the "Switchback" Triton (current version) to the front, tapping the white (DRL) function into my existing parking lights. There is a dimming wire that can tap into the low beam wire, to allow dimming when the headlights are on (so as not to be too bright).

I used these on my 2011 and they are fantastic.

Outback 2017/18 For fog light replacement/bulb replacement do you need to remove the wheel to remove the wheel well liner to get to the lights?
thanks how many plastic clip/pins need to be removed as well holding the liner?

There is a plastic panel under the fog light area that is easy to remove.

Here is one option for LED turn signals:

This is what I did to eliminate using the halogen high beams at the DRL. Looks way better. I used these:
