STOCK TUNES SUCK, If your car breaks down and it still has warranty have subaru fix it!
I'll agree the stock tune is not great, but there are not alot of people experiencing broken ringlands who are all stock. 99% of the broken ringland stories are on modded cars ... and many of those were VERY modded.

Some on this forum act like the ringlands are guaranteed to break. Strangely, I'm on my 3rd WRX and have never had a major mechanical failure at all .. and two of those cars were over stage 2.

Am I lucky? Has Baby Jesus smiled upon my car modding endeavors? No .. I simply do proper maintenance, put quality parts in my car, do one mod at a time ensuring all is running good before doing more, and last but not least I do not drive my car like the Duke Boys.

If you buy Chinese knock off parts, install 5 mods at a time, and drive your car like a maniac ... then yes, you will likely have problems.
