Side impact beams for crash safety improvement? Did they decide to make US and Canadian Evo's the same (cannot load the linked page, is the length the same as the Canadian Evo?).

The STI will do better straight ahead with more power and lighter weight (and 6 spd manual versus 5 spd), but it remains to be seen who does better on a track, and the Evo will be hard to beat given the tests reported so far.

Nah, the trans itself probably just weighs more.
Ya, but it is around 200 pounds heavier than JDM spec Evo X. Well I guess it is expected.

I also don't like how we get 11 less torque then the JDM/European counter part. They get there 311 lb/tq at 3,500 RPM too. I know I know, we get more horsepower, but I want my torque more :)

Now all I want to know is the pricing.

Are you sure about that??

I wouldn't take those numbers as gospel. I suspect the marketing dept is lying to us.
