I disagree...this is just another 09 WRX exhibiting engine failure and it should be documented. Besides the guy indicated multiple times in his post that a sound is what indicated to him that he had a problem...Change Engine Sound? Even if there was an oil leak what do you think ultimately happened? Poor lubrication conditions resulting in...spun rod bearing...? Sounds like the same problem to me.
Tom check out BIGSKY's post to see if that sound is familiar. Also maybe you could elaborate a little more on the information contained on your service reports. I guess I'd be more interested in the recent total engine/turbo failure (although I take it your vehicle is currently in the shop so maybe this will have to wait).
