Default WRX vs TS vs OBS / MY2003 Changes?

I'm thinking about getting an Impreza wagon and am considering the WRX, OBS (Outback Sport), and TS. I have a few questions:

1. Does anyone know where I can find the torque/power curves for the 2.5? A rough WRX curve is in this PDF at subaru.com. On that note, where can I find detailed specs on these cars? (beyond what is in the subaru.com PDFs) Here is the power curve from the PDF:

2. If I were to get the TS, what would people suggest I do for suspension upgrades. What about if I got the OBS?

3. What are the gearing differences between the three models?

4. What kind of cheap mods are there for the TS or OBS that don't affect warranty? There are none listed here at i-club for 2002 models other than the WRX (not sure which ones from 2001 are good for the 2002 model). Also, the i-club FAQ section on mods is incomplete. While the low-end grunt of the 2.5 is nice, passing speed on the highway is also important to me and 165 hp for a 3100+ lb car is not that great.

5. Any word on what changes will be made to MY2003 for either vehicle? Like a sunroof option or new gearing?

- Thanks!
