He has basically a new car, why would he waste the time and possible money doing a compression check when Subaru will do it under warranty?

Subaru sells intakes and some even do tunes at the dealership right? Seems some level of mods would have to be acceptable. Would this maybe only void the warranty on the exhaust and intake system?
Who's to say the tune is worth a damn? Maybe there was an issue with the tune, but he didn't data log so he couldn't see it? An intake and exhaust with a tune can blow a motor, but I'm glad you FEEL it shouldn't with your expansive knowledge.

Dropping a $1500 computer and breaking a 5K engine is completely different.

Subaru doesn't sell intakes for newer models anymore. And Subaru dealers do not do tunes, only Subaru updated tunes.

Care to try again?
