Given that the EJ series Subaru motors aren't exceptionally stout, a Subaru tuner (such as myself) would immediately disregard any tuning "solution" that didnt over ignition timing control. In fact, I'd say that any actual tuner (of any platform) would feel the same way. It just so happens that the n54/msd80/81 is tolerant of what can only be described as incomplete tuning.
