Dream on.. when I was looking for an 03 WRX which I eventually bought, I told one of the salesmen and put it out here, that a 2.5l would be real nice, easier to get more HP out of while staying out of detonation. I was told that in no way would Subaru go above 2.0 (or perhaps it was 2.2l) due to the class or classes it competed with in racing and some issues with a motor over 2.0l being sold in Europe. Well that was wrong. Now I dream of a 3.5 boxer 6 twin turbo in a WRX/STI size car. And see no reason why eventually it might not happen...
I'm not saying it won't happen.. I'm saying it won't happen in a few years. Considering the 2.0L turbo was the mainstay for a decade plus, it's just not good business sense to pour millions of dollars in R&D into a 2.5L turbo only to replace it in a few years.
Sorry, not gonna happen.
