    FA20 DIT could be the new STI motor?

    The JDM FA20 DIT is 296HP. Using the CVT.

    Could the EJ be replaced by this platform in the near future? It has the potential.

    Nobody really knows.

    It's abundantly clear that USDM STIs have never reflected JDM STIs...it's hard to believe that they'd start homoligating them now.

    Ha. I saw that video. If they do change the engine on the next STI (2016 or 2017) I would be disappointed if I already bought one. I have read nothing but good things about the FA20 architecture.

    I thought the video was serious at first lol
    Ya I've heard a lot of good things on the fa20. Really does seem like it responds very well to mods and not as temperamental. Now it's just the longevity of the motor

    Yes. It has only been around since 2013 so it has not proven its longevity.

    Yea I posted that video on NASIOC a while back and got a few laughs.. If the STI had the FA engine I would be going for the STI but the EJ is still having problems and some of the guys I have talked to that have a 2015 STI said to go with the WRX... you will also people that love their 15 STI but for me the FA is the deciding factor, I am just curious how its going to be with E85 and we have already seen some great power on it but I have also heard that its not good full time on E85 so IDK...

    I think it's more likely that there just won't be a STi offered anymore.. and the price for a WRX will go up.

    I haven't heard anything about longevity again with e85 but it's supposed to be a huge bump in power with just that
    I agree with getting rid of the sti car.. but I believe they'll offer sport packages for the wheels and wing on the wrx
