It's not the valves that are the problem, it's the factory tune. It is well known that the OEM map has a flaw and can cause burnt valves.

That's from my Tuner, he found the flaw a few years back.
255,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
