Default 2011 STi to get two engine choices, just not in the US.

I can't believe I'm the first to post about this:
http://www.7tune.com/news-scoop-suba...s-two-engines/

Can anyone confirm?

Why don't they put direct injection into a ej207 and call it day?

Man, why not 2.7 or atleast direct injection?
They are just bringing whats in Japan to the states. Or are they?
Nothing new.

Anyway, 2.5 ftw!
With aftermarket parts, the 2.5 should make more power.

I disagree with everyone.

Ysidro, you think the bigger motor will make more power? Really?

Makes sense when you think about it. One engine to drive the front wheels and the second for the rear wheels. It is all wheel drive after all.

for modern engines, the bigger the more potential for bigger torque and HP with the right tune and support. its a fact. even the old lame mustang 4.6L can make 500 hp even though only 200 hp stock.

Yeah, STUCK. I wish we had this option. I would be WAY more apt to look into a new STi if I could choose a 207 over a 257. It's just a better motor in every way OTHER than displacement. I'll take the extra 1200 rpm up top thank you.

So which engine is going to be in the rear? I hope it's the EJ25.

Yes, "stuck" with the 2.5. The 2.5 would have been attractive, if it came with twin scroll and Direct Injection. As it stands, the 2.5 was created by carving metal out (boring/stroking) of the original 2.0L block.....I prefer having more metal in the (semi-closed deck) block, in a Turbo-charged engine, to withstand the additional stresses that come with forced induction.

If this 2.0L engine (Twin-scroll with Dual-AVCS) is going to become reality in the STI (I doubt it however, in the USDM market), then I would be a truly happy camper. People who have driven the 2.0L STI engine (which incidentally has similar HP and 21lbs/ft of additional torque over the 2.5L USDM engine) states that it is a LOT more tractable and "eager" than the 2.5L USDM STI engine.

You will never understand till you drive a car with a 207 in it.

I'm just not seeing how a 2.0 vs 2.5 engine is better.

if you want the 2.0L with virtually no torque before turbo spools, then you should just consider civic Si or rx-8... they are cheaper....
