I wonder if the “stronger internals” described for the 2019 STi is a response to the EJ tendency for Ringland failures... thoughts(?)

I thought the stronger internals are for the RA. HP bump is rumored for 2019. Which my guess is sodium filled valves that carry over to non-RA . EVO last edition did the same

From what I have been reading, I believe the power levels for the 2019 model will be the same. It won't be until 2020 with the whole new redesign that we can expect a new engine.

By new engine, is it assumed to be an upgraded version of the FA?

Slow down there bud.....

You must be new to Subaru. They are not in a hurry on anything. BUT, if we haven't heard anything by now, then that usually tells you there won't be much, if any, change.

And they haven't said either of that at all. Don't spread unknown rumors.

New for 2020:
All new body and interior, but rooted with the time-tested EJ25 and rally heritage.
At 312HP it’s the fastest STI ever.

I'm guessing this record breaking machine will be a sedan?

You forgot the removal of the turbo charger. With the newly NA configured EJ25 motor coupled with electrical assist and CVT producing a combined 312HP.

I don’t think it would lose its rumble as it still two opposed cylinders, unless they use equal pipes.

The STi "rumble" was not fabricated. It the result of an inefficient exhaust header due to the location of the turbo on the older motors. Notice the FA has equal length headers with no "up-pipe". And yeah it doesn't sound great.

Porsche has never tried to mimic Subaru, and vice versa. But I'll take the sound of a Porsche flat 6 at 8k RPM over Subaru rumble any day.

If we're just throwing engines out that, although not a flat engine, but a flat plane crank engine - GT350 from idle to 8,200 and then back down again; I could listen to that on repeat all day long.
