Subaru gave its flagship model, the WRX STi, a redesign for the 2015 model year. However, Subaru chose to carry over the EJ257 intercooled and turbocharged 2.5L H4 boxer engine. Some critics are disappointed that the base model WRX would receive the cutting edge 2.0L FA20DIT engine, while the 2015 WRX STi has the same engine from the 2014 model year. For those critics Masuo Takatsu, program manager for both the base 2015 WRX and WRX STi, had this to say “I felt the STI’s weaker area was the handling side. If we didn’t have the chassis, why add more power to overwhelm it? Also, this EJ engine has proved itself in competition. It’s an engine we confidently bring to the track. The new FA-series in the WRX has not been proven in motorsports. Plus, we knew the aftermarket could supply more power to those STi owners who demanded it.”

Masuo Takatsu knew what he was talking about. He predicted the aftermarket would step in and K&N® has done so with an aesthetically pleasing and highly functional performance air intake system for the 2015 and 2016 Subaru WRX STi 2.5L H4.
