Make sure you get an OEM Subaru T-stat. Subies usually don't like aftermarket ones...

I cleaned out the radiator by flushing it with a hose, i think i found my problem. the radiator is messed up, but i think i have a leak because when i filled it up it took a while even with a hose on full blast and when i flushed it out it was very clean so i think that was the problem.
how long is a while exactly? that happened to me on my '74, i was filling the rad. and it was taking too long, pulled the dipstick just to see, sure 'nuff, engine full of water. turns out the freeze plugs in the heads popped out while it was sitting, yours may have a bad head gasket. just a thought...

I've never experimented with my subaru but I doubt you can drive it without any water in it with the hope that the wind will keep it cooled if you keep the car moving.
If your engine was not knocking and pinging then maybe somehow you lucked out.
