Weren't the Bugeye transmissions considered undesireable for the power? Something about "glass trannies"?

Not to say you are wrong, HOWEVER there were many Subaru reps that were denying the next gen LGT would have a Turbo stateside, or rather it was fairly slim. After a member and I saw a couple we learned a few reps knew about it, but were sworn to not mention anything till Subaru did. Basically, the rep you have spoken to might or might not know, but I doubt they'd share anything.
