    I remain a devoted Subaru owner, and will likely buy whatever STi is available at my college graduation. Still, EVOs are great cars, I wouldn't complain if there was one in my garage, and the MR looks like makes a great car better, plus this means Subaru will have to up the ante.

    The new MR version looks to make the Evo an even more enjoyable ride with the addition of a larger turbocharger for improved low- and mid-range power and
    come again? Bigger turbo better for low-range power? Maybe more torque, but it sure is not gonna help spool.

    The MR also sheds about 300 pounds, thanks to a new aluminum roof and lightweight alloy BBS wheels.
    Either they did much more than this, or it is BS, plain and simple. They may have saved 10 lbs. on the wheels, roof....50?

    Throw in wonderful clutch and brake feel, smooth shifting and a very willing and responsive (if a little underpowered) turbocharged four add up to one of the most rewarding-to-drive cars in existence.
    Since when is 230 awhp in a 3,200lb car underpowered? Thats silly. No one calls the wrx underpowered and it has much less.

    I'm a little skeptical. Mitsubishi tends to exagerate a little, like they did w/ last years 0-60 times. That said it sounds poised to be a pretty cool car. I'd just like to see one for myself and check out the production numbers.

    Screw the spec c, maybe they will upgrade us to the real STi motor.

    Nope. I think this is yet another model. The Spec C equivalent model of Mitsubishi if you will. I am REALLY curious as to what turbo they used and how much more power it makes.
