The issue goes beyond the tune on the 2008 STI. Because tuned cars have blown, and cars with Forged Pistons also does not fix the issue.

The cars need oil pick up replaced, oil catch-can (to help reduce blow by) and they need fuel rails since the cylinders stock get fuel at different times which can lead to lean situations in Cylinder #4 (the last to get fuel and most likely to blow...happened to my '05 WRX).
