Goerg,no you can find it outside japan, Asia mostly, but once import to your country, ECU need to de-tune to meet emission regulation.

Misha, could be tyre size, but by 0.2 second , does it matter ? this is not F1, 0.2 doesn't really mean anything in normal car ...

wads, this is not mazda speed version.
