if there are a lot of oil vapors(and thus oil) being consumed. then they can cause knock that causes broken ringlands

the issue is BAD TUNING more than anything else, really

there are other issues that can contribute, but that is beyond this discussion

and i have run 20-21psi since 2006 in my 2006 wrx and it isnt any issue

KNOCK is the issue....psi is irrelevant, really
