Default What are the specs on the late 90's wrc car engine?

Hey guys ive been watching some rally footage and the wrc car of the late 90's (555 team) is so impressive! both with the driving and the car.
check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYC6VLA8wT4

im wondering if anyone knows the specs on this engine. it sounds so mean! and the car just flies! im guessing its a 2.2L, seems to have antilag, but what are the exact hp and tq numbers? it seems to have really impressive torque! anyone know what turbo they used and if its a custom intake or exhaust manifold? what boost pressure?

im guessing that most of it is the short gear ratios, but the engine still seems very impressive and it sounds so AMAZING! how can i get my turbo 2.0 to sound like that???

Its 2 litres, and pretty much everything on it is custom.

HP was around 300 and tq was around 400(?)

theyre not as similar as some of you make them seem.....

sure, they are an EJ series engine, but "massaged" is an understatement.

the power curve is also more due to the restrictor, not the cams.
the thing about restrictors is, for a certain size, they can only flow a set maximum amount. it all has to do with sonic and super-sonic compressible flow. cool stuff.

but yeah, research it a bit, theyre cool engines.

THe opening shots in that video showed the 1995 Rally car which were governed under Group A regulations which I think were cloder to production cars. "World Rally Car" regulations didn't come around to 1998 when the cars became closer to what they are today.
