The lower service limit is 9.0-9.8 depending on cranking speed
Subaru reccomends no more than 2 bar, or 28 PSI variation between cylinders
It does show an (other) category, which could be MPFI or Carby, i'm not sure, but if its MPFI the lower service limit is 8.5-9.3
Which means you should be fine, but like the rest of us, a new set of rings wouldn't hurt
