The only reason Subaru's make so much more torque than power is because they have a turbo that can push a lot of air in the midrange RPM's and tuner's choose to put in a huge boost peak. Then by the high RPM's (where power would really take off) the turbo is running out of breath so boost drops (and therefore torque and power). If you tuned a flat boost curve it is easily possible to get the numbers you mentioned.
