Now with the STI, it still uses the same EJ engine, so your power is going to come more in the mid-range vs low-range to the FA. A lot of people like the new 15+ WRXs for this reason and you can buy other things to make it rival the STI.

More on the differences between 3rd and 4th gen WRXs here:

I was asking about differences in the stis. But thanks for the refresher! All the reasons stated in the thread-link are exactly why I went with a 16 wrx instead of previous gen.
I'm just curious of what he thinks of the new gen vs older gen in terms of dd and handling.
