Kind of glad it's not a turbo version...there are enough kits on the market to make things interesting. The bbk and suspension changes are probably going to be a very nice addition.

It is TMIC with ducting that runs through the hood

Exactly that is the Forester with the TMIC that has the hoodscoop. The refreshed 2013 does not have a hood scoop. I'm wondering if it is a FMIC now.

That's the 2014 Forrester with louvers that direct air from the grill to tmic.

Ah very interesting. I hadn't seen those pictures before. Very cool (no pun intended) way of channeling a ton of air to the tmic.

The scoop is what gave it character.

I agree. It's also what differentiated it from the 2.5L

I hope they don't do the same for the Legacy at some point.

Just looks to me like a lowered BRZ with the STi trim bits and brakes...and a huge wang. I am waiting to be convinced otherwise.

True, but I think a lot of people (hello CA) would be interested in OEM upgrades for inspection reasons and warranty.

And autox stock class folks would probably love a factory turbo'd BRZ. Not sure if that'd bump it up a class, though. I'm not smart about that stuff.

That's a fancy hood on that fozzy, but I don't think this car has the ability to funnel like that. We don't have an upper grille. There's so much room in the front bumper, I see no reason it wouldn't be FMIC'd when going FI.

Just to be clear I think that photo is a 2013 legacy not the new 2014 to be shown this month @LA

"
The exterior adds some more refinement and the turbo model loses its iconic hood scoop – something some of us are glad to see go. Instead, the turbocharged Forester receives a unique front fascia, seen here in the image above."



Even if the sti isn't turbo I'm still excited to see what it is and how much it costs.
