Default New Turbo for 2007 Legacy GT?

In a review of the 2007 Legacy GT spec.B at http://www.thecarconnection.com/inde...&article=10483, I was surprised to read this:
Quote:
The 2.5-liter turbocharged four carries over into the Spec.B with no significant changes versus the GT Limited model that otherwise tops off the model range. A new-design turbocharger is used for '07, though boost remains the same, at a peak of 13.5 psi (versus 14.5 psi in the STi). Actual output of the engine doesn't change for 2007 either, though it's now rated 243 hp (versus 250) and 241 lb-ft of torque (versus 250 for '06) due to the new SAE system.

IIRC, the non-limited GT only comes in automatic.

Darn you Jon for beating me in posting the car connection article

Sorry about that.

The Car Connection reviewer really likes the new seats in the 2007 spec.B but failed to mention the new two-position memory in the driver's seat:
Quote:
The Alcantara seats are a step up over last year's leather upholstery; they're supple, grippy, and slightly better contoured with deeper lower cushions and a bit more lateral support.

There is no non-limited GT

All GT WAGONs are autos though

Hello,

Eh? Spec.B wagon? Did I miss something?

No, they are saying the GT Limited's liftback is aluminum
