FWIW, I was just as concerned as you and very skeptical of the "subie smell", thinking cars shouldn't smell like they're burning regardless. However, I ran my car reasonably hard (no red lines but heavy load accel, corner g's and braking) two days ago on a long drive home and whaduyaknow....the burning smell is gone. I can't explain it but it is no more. maybe these guys are right. I have to do IM gaskets and an oil change this Saturday so I'll let you know if I come across anything suspicious.
