That's the catch 22 I'm facing. Run stock with a stock lean tune. if it blows, SOA should cover it. Unless they blame it on abuse. OR run OTS stg 1 tune for a safer tune, but if something then happens and SOA sees that it was reflashed back to stock tune, then the ringland may not be covered.

The instance of ringland failures will always be there, how played out it is depends on how many members are actually saying anything and how many owners are members.
yea I guess, the underlying problem, lean AFR's when hitting boost before going to a richer AFR is still ongoing. Just seems like I read less about actual cases on the 2011+ models. So maybe something in the stock tune did change a bit?

I have read this to be true. Not all cases, but some where warranty was denied on a stock vehicle if tire wear or something else indicated abuse
