Default will there be good jdm tuner parts for this 2.5L turbo?

i see no mention of this motor being overseas, just here in north america (although there is mention the upcoming redesigned legacy will get the 2.5L turbo as well across the globe). will this mean there will be no japanese market tuner parts for this motor? i'm not saying us tuners are crap, but a good chunk of the aftermarket parts come from japan...

I, for one, can't think of any Japanese market tuner parts for the EJ20 motor, beyond a few stroker kits that nobody in the US buys anyway. Obviously, most non-engine parts intended for the JDM facelifted STi should work on the US STi.

Default JDM

I myself don't see why the Japanese market would manufacture any parts specifically for the US STi, however I do see it as a possibility to have some US tuners aquire JDM technology to soley manufacture or modify some parts that would upgrade engine performance.

This STi, on paper so far, is too good to let sit around with it's, and I say this in complete sarcasm, mere 300 HP. Granted, 300 HP is, well, gargantuan, but tuning it is even better and I personally need to up the performance of my car regularly or I will go nutz.
