I feel my Forester a little lazy, and sometimes more agile, at regular driving conditions... Just if I use the Power option it get better but I don´t know how much will affect to fuel consumption.
I don´t believe in magic but there must be something for my Forester that increase the power (but not fuel consumption)... maybe some MSD system, What do you recommend?

Power can be increased, the power option only changes the transmission shift points and not the power (Torque) output of the engine, so if you are happy with the transmission in power mode then increasing the output from the engine seems to have little purpose?

I thought that the Power mode also makes deliver more fuel, anyway, I know that increase power involves to do so many things... But my problem is only on outputs, in the first acceleration to get out quickly, I have to stomp the pedal hardly. I know the new 2.5X (no turbo) have a better response from 0 rpm than the 2.0XT´s.
How could I improve this?
Thanks!
