I was able to tighten the bolts down to torque but the material basically scraped off while tightening finally allowing for a flush fitment. Other than that everything seems to work great and love the peace of mind that comes from a higher capacity pan with better baffling.
Very sorry to hear about your experience with our pan, it should not have been like that. Sounds like the pan may have moved or not been located properly when it was machined. We could have replaced it or added spotfaces to the holes close to the radius.

Stock 2004-2018 STi or 2006-2014 WRX dipstick will work just fun. If you give the handle a little shake or wiggle, it will break the o-ring seal. A pressure relieving dipstick seems like an expensive work around.
