Maybe all the low engine speed driving I did contributed to this failure in some way.

I'm with you 110%, a bone stock off the lot car, sports car, highway sled, whatever, with proper care and maintenance, reasonable driving, should not drop a motor. A Yugo, maybe, otherwise....

Then the kicker, if you modify it to make it reliable it voids the warranty.

Subaru has had a problem with the oem tune since '04, you'd think they would have it right by now.
