cool...still don't like the top mounted IC but that's my opinion.

Since this is the JDM version, will this be offered in other regions?

Awesome! This car looks glorious in white, and the new face works brilliantly with the STi treatment. Now, if only Subaru imported this into Australia...

And where the hell is the Subaru Liberty GT STi?

It seems that even outside the US, all Forester Turbos will be powered by a 2.5L Turbo. I hope that they have around 230/250HP since this version is JDM only!

Torque is at 378 Nm, or 279 lb-ft which isn't too shabby, especially considering that the vehicle only weighs 1500kg. It doesn't sound like a ton of power, but the current 2.5XT does 0-60 in 5.3 with just 210hp. This should definitely break the five second mark. Hopefully they will stick this engine in the 2.5XT version for the US, but even if it gets a bump to 230 it would be great. I'm really thinking about looking into one of these when I graduate next year or the ten year old Windstar finally dies - whichever comes first.

It is suspected that the 2.5XT's power is very underrated from the factory, dyno test estimations of the crank power is around 250-260hp and a load more of torque...
