i would do that but i dont want to go through changing the downpipe to stock again. and i did the scheduled maintenance from them before i went to stage 2. so if they were to see the downpipe, they can most likely assume that to be probable cause for the white smoke, and there goes my warranty. theres only so much i know about cars, and with something this in depth, i might just take it to a reputable tuner like, cobb socal, and see whats up. theyll probably know whats really happening. i dont really trust the subaru dealerships when it comes to stuff like this. i drove the car today, and again it feels fine. im sure its nothing big, but im just taking these precautions now so i wont have any head aches down the road.
