The 2.5 liter standard WRX makes sense though, keep one engine block to reduce number of parts needed, won't need to keep parts for both 2.0l and 2.5l here in the States.
400 HP isn't at all feasable to me. It just sounds far to ridiculous for a production car in this niche. 330 HP - 350 hp sounds more reasonable, and if it were to raise to that the standard WRX could have 270 hp, still about 70 hp less than the STi which is the power difference now.
But i like how the guys at the dealership also mentioned the torque with the HP rating... makes you wonder.
