I don't want to add to the commentary in the 2015 sti thread as it will be lost, but I am disappointed that Subaru has stuck with the 305 hp 2.5L mill that has been in every sti since 2004. I would like to see Subaru saddle up with a truly premium vehicle with ~350 hp via forged pistons, better bearings, and perhaps larger bearing surface areas so that we don't have to touch the bottom end to get a long-life 400 hp engine. Of course all us enthusiasts will modify whatever Subaru makes, but given all the out-of-the-box cars that have eclipsed the sti in performance, the stock STI has become somewhat marginalized.
