Torque curve for FB25?
I have a 2003 Forester with the old 2.5 liter boxer. One thing I've never liked about this engine is that it has poor acceleration and power, especially at lower rev's. Whenever I'm under 2000 RPM I always feel like dropping it into 3rd.
Now I'm in the market for a new car. I've considered the turbo but it needs too much babying - much more frequent oil changes, high octane gas, and generally just having to pay more attention to it.
But in 2010 Subaru came out with a new engine - the FB25. It's still a 2.5 liter 4-cyl boxer but it supposedly has a flatter torque curve.
Does anyone know where I can see a curve for it, especially compared to my current engine?
Thanks in advance.
