Problem and likely cause: Hole found in top of short block caused by damaged piston and connecting rod.
Modifications: None
Submitted for warranty work: Yes
Reason for denial: "Operated vehicle outside of its intended parameters."
I asked what specifically was operated outside of its intended parameters. They said engine speed and boost were outside of intended parameters. When I asked for the report showing when it happened and what the engine speed and boost numbers were they refused to show me/tell me saying it was an internal Subaru document. Subaru is covering under goodwill but not warranty.
That's strange that they would not share more details on it. But at least you are getting it replaced free of cost.

Did you at any time push the car too hard?
