Unhappy mazdaspeed3 engine kablooie

So I've read all sorts of great things about the MS3, raced one and it was actually very fast, looks pretty cool hurrah etc.

Then, I saw this thread-

MazdaSpeed 2.3L DISI Turbo Blown Engine Resource Thread - Mazdaspeed Forums

WTFukingfuck? A lot of people are blowing engines on unmodded cars under plain old cruise conditions, catastrophically with rods snapping, etc. To me, it seems they must be detonating horribly so maybe there's some problem with the direct injection system or the fuel pumps. Thoughts?

the fuel pumps have issues i believe i read about it onthe big mazda baord. A major issue of what i see in the MS3 genre is the people who own them arent realy the enthusiasts on a lvl say with us or even most dsm'rs
