    Guys, relax. This was obviously a faulty turbo. I don't think it has anything to do with the automatic transmission. The sudden change in engine speed from the downshift was too much stress for the turbo, which had material or manufacturing faults, and it failed. No big deal and it could've happened to ANY OF US, including the 5MTers!

    um...perhaps you missed the intense sarcasm in my post




    Newsflash: Without warning, WRX's across the country began crashing due to a glitch in the automatic transmission, causeing the car to downshift into too low a gear and blow the turbo!
