    And I'm gonna laugh my head off when I finally get my 2013! Blah, siiiiick of waiting.

    So OP, have you really got a chance to punch it yet?
    Not yet. I haven't even taken it to a decent mountain pass. I think once I clock in a few thousand miles I'll get a feel of it's power and balance, or its lack of. So far, I think it's a great car! It's only my second AWD and my first turbo! So I'm not as experienced to be pushing it yet. But in stock form, it's shouldn't be too hard.

    I remember when I first had a decent powered car, every time I would come home, I would walk in with a smile on my face.

    BUT! coming from a puny honda fit (with 117 crank hp"OH BOY!!!") the stock tune will hold me over till I go stage 1/ break it in.
    Not sure about what you heard about blowing motors at 600 miles, but if subaru's are going that bad, I wouldn't "tune" it, I would just take it back to the dealer and have them take care of it. I can't imagine being that bad. I think their tune is pretty weak under 2.5k to save fuel. Hence you can probably get pretty decent fuel rating. Most aftermarket tunes seem to address that. If you're burning better at 2.5k, you have a higher spool and more pressure in. This will give you more hp for the rest of the band. Hence you see a huge gap between stock vs stg1. Stg2 deals with inefficiencies due to smog.

    But it's your car, and ultimately comes down to what you want out of it.

    Yeah, I think half of us are just waiting for our new cars and the other half are just waiting to finish break-in... It's like a bunch of elementary kids 5 mins before the bell to go home.
