VAF: WRX STi, EJ25.

Kia ora Soba. I guess I just want some good info. I know it's a bit of a stock standard wee suby, but I know little about the engine, hp, fuel consumption, and all that jazz. When I do a search around the traps I get TA-BP5 or CBA-BP5, but nothing like the model code I have. I figure the D is for 4th year, ie 2007, but what about the K9S? I bought it thinking it was the 160hp 2.0R, but it could be something different...
