Subaru Confirms New 300 HP 2.0-liter Turbo Engine for Next STI
text size: A- A+
To confirm this, Subaru let it slip during the LA Auto Show that the next generation WRX and STI will not only be offered as stand-alone models, but will also send the power to all four wheels using a turbocharged version of the company’s new 2.0-liter FB flat four, as Car and Driver writes.
The company said that both vehicle should loose weight thanks to the new platform and that the new powerplant will deliver 300 hp under the bonnet of the STI.
Do you hear that Mitsubishi? Forget the hybridization of the Evo, this is how it’s done!

Wow, a massive 300 BHP!!! Such excitement!! That is pretty much the same friggin amount since, eh......2004? What progress! The STI was once a standout in power and acceleration for it's price, but how it is just a has-been. To match where it was back in 2004, the current STI should put out 380-420 BHP in STOCK form.
