I'm not going to parse through your datalog...

2016 STI, Stock.

A question since you brought it up, in 3rd gear is WOT around 3k RPM not recommended? I know going WOT in higher gears at low RPM is stress on the engine, but I thought 3rd was low enough (at least the car didn't 'feel' like it was straining). FWIW one reason I started logging was to improve my driving so any and all advice is welcome.

It's fine to start there other times, but for the purposes of troubleshooting the issue you're having, start 2-2.5K RPMs
