Subaru Gr.N engine tuning ?

I noticed that the engine tuning for the Gr.N STi is quite interesting.

Obviously, the bhp is "only" 270 but the torque on the animal is pretty incredible. it's even 25% higher than the PPP STi. (535Nm instead of 405Nm on PPP Sti and 343Nm on standard STi)

Does anyone know whether it's possible to have that tuning into a roadgoing STi ?

Since the bhp does not increase, insurance should remain unaffected

Although not having the restrictor might indeed let the power creep up (and lower torque ??).

(here's the brochure)

Hi 1999Turbo !

I know the price of the full thing. But have no interest in the full car with roll-cage etc. Only the engine tuning (new turbo, camshafts, ecu and exhaust manifold).

And maybe the clutch as even on a stardard STi, the clutch smells like hell if you reverse 20 feet uphill.
