300 HP Subaru Outback???
Posted 22 July 2004 - 07:32 PM
I am not sure if I want to buy this year or wait until next year or later for some features that I want.
- Built in XM radio
- Audio controls on steering wheel for 5 speed turbo engine
- 6 speed manual
I am also thinking of the potential of Subaru bumping the engine to 300 HP since it is the same engine as in the STi.
Would this be possible?

the WRX has a 2.0 engine in it. the new turbo legacys have a 2.5 in them. so what exactly do you want to the engine?

The Turbo hits HP peak at a lower RPM and higher torque at a lower RPM(250 lb at 3,600 vs 219 lb at 4,200) then the 3.0R
I am going to hold out for a potential Outback STi.

I don't see Subaru bumping the outback to 300. More likely would be increasing the displacement on the H6 for something like 275HP. The H6 has alot of room to grow...I could see 300 NA horses out of that engine easy. What does Porsche get out of their NA H6s? The 2.5 at 300 HP is a balls out four banger...plus I wouldn't trust that thing to last too long. I'd take a tuned out 2.0 WRX engine over the 2.5 any day.
The ej25t in the new STi seems to be holding power fairly well, rember it has a very close power to cubic inch as the ej20t.
