I think the reason for the 10hp increase is because of the JDM ecu and the higher octane gas they use in Japan ... someone correct me if I'm wrong ...

I believe JDM engines have higher compression ratios too.

from what i heard, the jdm gsr have different pistons and that's the only thing that makes the jdm one different from the usdm.
