I remember reading a post from a tuner with a dyno and a data logger that the problem is actually related to the ECU insisting to push timing even after det on some occasions. It only happened on about 25% of the dyno runs, and didn't match the ECU behavior on the other runs, where it behaved fine. Anybody know if that has been verified by other parties?
If that's true, it sounds like a plain ol' bug in the ECU, so a proper fix for the problem should NOT affect power or torque. If Subaru's solution is to simply back off timing everywhere, it would affect power/torque. I'm hoping for the "bug" story to be true...I've gotten addicted to the power!
