Default 2007 STI Stock Tune Bad or Good???

I have heard that the stock tune for a '07 STI is not correct from factory and can cause problems, serious problems; is this true???

I have issues with mine that has only 12K on it and have since about 8K or earlier.

Problems like detonation "expierenced power drops and flat spots around 3K & 4K in the rev when laying into it" - not beating on it.

I know the solution is to get a aftermarket tune but what I want is to hear it from Subaru of America that there is or is not a problem and if so CORRECT IT or if not then fix my car.

If this cannot be done I want written authorization from Subaru of America to have my car tuned professionally within reason so they can't say anyting about the aftermarket work and honor the warranty.

If none of this is possible how about a recall?

Am I out of line here, or wrong or what!!!

the tune and pistons in that year car were horrible

That's exactly what I am finding out especially after speaking to Warranty CSR yesterday and she says " according to who, you " refering to my explaination and my thoughts as to why this is going on.

Oh and on top of this my 07 is a Ltd Ed - piss me off...

Nice Customer Service SOA!!!@#%#@#^#%$&#&$%&($&(%_Thanks for nothing.

Engine rebuild with high quality forged parts and a new tune. After mine gets out of the shop, as I also own an 07. Aftermarket warranty unfortunately, but its something at least, Im hoping my engine replacement is covered. I say off of recommendation from a few people, one of which has a stage 3 newer STi rolling around the military base I work on. But yeah, a full engine rebuild as in replacing the connecting rods, piston heads, rod bearings, maybe even the entire shortblock with a high performance aftermarket one, whether its now or in the long run. I learned the hard way too, so, dont feel alone in this. I noticed the lag/powerkill around 3 to 4k rpms too by the way. Kind of sad really.
