I've had 100 new subaru owners show up at our weekly meet and tell me they are aiming for 400whp. Everyone that rode in my car with 375whp/360wtq were blown away at how fast the car was. It would tear the tires off the road. 400awhp is very different than 400rwhp in feel when you're just having fun on the steets around town. The car was way faster than 400 hp RWD cars in nearly every way.
Also, that setup was a PAIN to keep running well. I'm done with that. EJ207 with a nice 300-350whp will be super fun and reliable. I can't wait to finish it.
If anyone is curious.
