Default 2013 Blew at ~89k

Spun rod bearing at around 89k miles. (2013 EJ255)

I was kinda loose with my oil changes (sometimes even waiting as long as the manufacturer recommended 7,500 mile intervals, for shame, I know).

Built motor later and the oil gets changed no more than 3k miles every single time.

2011 WRX. Torqued Performance Stage 1 tune since new. Torqued Performance Stage 2 tune w/ Cobb downpipe since 2013 (about 20k miles).

65k miles now. Never any issues at all. Just normal maintenance. All fluids changed at 20k. Redline synthetic in diffs and trans. Oil changes once a year or 4500 miles whichever comes first. Rotella T6 since new.

The only service ever done at the dealer was for the secondary air pump recall (and the airbag recall).

2013 WRX STI bought the car at 63xxx. Iíve done a fair amount of autocross with it. Motor blew at 83xxx, wrist pin separated. Got a warranty short block but a reoccurring p2443 check engine light that dealer refuses to fix. Basically stock motor no Bolt-ons except for killer b pan/pickup/baffle and Invidia R400 catback. Motor currently at 87xxx. Upcoming mods Domís cylinder 4 cooling mod and AOS. Potential upcoming mods AP, down pipe(have but waiting for AP) and would like to do much more. As for maintenance I did spark plugs at 70k oil changes every 3k (pensoil full syn), changed rear diff/gearbox at 80k
