I think we can hold out hope for the STI to be 350 HP+. The weak link in this WRX is the CVT. To bad they did not offer it in two different tunes like the MK 8 Golf R. It is the opposite there however. The stick version has 280 Ft lbs and the DSG 310.
Iam a little supprised though that the CVT in the Assent can handle 277 ft lbs and tow 5000 lbs. That tow amount puts a lot of stress on that CVT. Maybe the new quick shifting in the WRX causes more torque limitations.
