Yeah, but that's peak . The area under the torque curve below 4000 is sure to be quite a bit greater on the American breed. This is not only a potent vitamin for 0-60 performance, but also pulling out of teh corners, dropping track times tremendously.

I never figured the 2.0 in the STi would be much better than the one in our current WRX. That's why I have always said that I would car a bit about it coming to America. My mind completey changed when I heard about the 25% bump in displacement.
