Every time they release a new model and don't upgrade to a 2.5T, is one less sale from me.

There was a local who did a STI swap into a 2 door 2.5 RS. Unfortunately, I haven't seen his car in a while.

The FA20 responds to mods very well... I've seen a bunch of forum/FB members hitting 400 to 410 AWHP/AWTQ on a Mustang Dyno with full bolt ons/100% E85. And you only need to upgrade the fuel pump. Injectors are good to go.

If they put a new FA variant in the future STI i'd have to consider trading in the Rex
