Has anyone heard of this model that was only offered in Japan? Any pics would be appreciated. It was suppose to have a bit more HP, sorta of a Type-R version of the GTS.

^^and less anal emmissions laws. they use less restrictive catalytic converters on the cars, thus more power. most all JDM cars have more power than their USDM counterparts. emmissions laws are also why we don't have this edition of the car, nor the 190 horse GTS. But one thing we do get is a speed limit higher than 62.

Precisely. They haven't differant emission laws over there, so our versions are more restricted and we lose out a bit, but also yes they do use a higher grade of fuel octane and such.

You could get the same numbers or better if you took off your entire exhaust system. grin But I didn't know it came with LSD.
