Getting more power out of a stock motor is something people from all brands/makes want to do no matter if you drive a sports car or a big 4X4 truck. I have a Ram that I have done exhaust and intake on and if I have an engine failure then I should buy a new engine according to a few people here. I don't see how those simple mods are pushing so much more power to cause a failure.
Nobody is saying that they WILL cause a failure, but that they CAN. ANY engine mod on ANY car has the ability to cause a failure.

Most people experience 0 problems, but theres a small percentage that do. The bottom line comes down to if you are worried about keeping your warranty, leave the car stock. Simple as that.

Sure, subaru can deny it, but it's funny how people on here freak out about such a minor mod.
i would'nt consider modifying the ECU programing to be a "minor" mod, even though you might think so. With the stock "****ty" tune, subaru will fix their errors. Why even give them an excuse to deny it?
