Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone knows what's up with the new XT.

I just about cried in joy when I saw the new Subaru/Lance Armstrong commercial with this car!

 

So, it's a 2.5L just like the STI but, it has less HP than the WRX? I know the STI runs crazy high boost but, why is there significantly less HP than the 2.0L WRX?

 

Damn subaru, making thier freakin underpowered cars! 210 HP and 230-somethin' FtLbs of torque!?! :lol:

 

Hmmm, I just graduated from college and hooked up a high paying job....XT here I freakin' come!

 

Later guys,

Dan

The internals of the turbo forester and sti are different, but the big reason hp numbers are lower is boost is probably lower.

 

Crank boost up a little, and hp numbers will be much better. The forester with the 2.5 turbo will probably beat the WRX off the line since it's got gobbs more torque.
