Haven’t seen this talked about on Jalopnik or Oppo, but has anyone else read this? This is coming from Motoring in Australia (who have been known to be fairly accurate with info) that the FR-S will get a model refresh and slight power bump to 210hp and 159tq up from 200hp and 151tq, Accomplished by reducing friction and a revised intake manifold.

Although that isn’t exactly what most of us are pining for it is more than welcomed, considering Subaru has been known to turn down lots of what the Scion/Toyota division has wanted to do with it since Subaru is the one manufacturing them.

Even if it is not a huge power bump this would put the 2.0 boxer at 105hp/liter which is pretty nice. Maybe they even removed the mid torque dip from the factory similar to some aftermarket tunes.
