Complaining is good, brings common issues to light...with the hope that the people from Subaru read these threads and do something about it.
Keep in mind that the WRX/STI is known as a "tuner" car, and should have been engineered to support an certain increase in stock HP/torque (like other performance vehicles i.e. Mustang, Evo, etc.), and should definitely NOT be breaking ring lands with a safe OTS Stage 1 tune.
The "tuning" aspect is a major reason why I bought my STI...if my car couldn't be tuned safely, I wouldn't have bought it, and I would have kept my Evo.
