Did subaru adress that issue?
the engine blowing up were more common on the 06-07 sti... my friend owns a 07 sti, after 2 monthes of purchase the engine blew, good thing subaru warrantied the engine and replaced it for him, but when they changed out the engine, they reused the turbo's from the blown engine...
