Based on this, it seems someone wants to keep it limited at that point for the sake of not destroying the CVT. I wouldn't try to push it past 300 ft-lbs.
Subaru's Ecu in this car suposedly learns what fuel you are pump through it and it is the first turbo subaru has put out to my knowledge that 87 oct is ok (although not recommended) but if you put 87 in it I am sure the boost is cut down to protect the turbo but that I am not sure on.
