Default Tommy Kaira tuned fozzie?

Has anyone ever heard of foresters being tuned by the legendary Japanese tuner Tommy Kaira?
The reason i'm asking is because i saw a forester badged with a Tommy Kaira 2.2 Boxer tuned logo, and was questioning it's authenticity.

Did some research and found out TommyKaira manufactured a 2.2L stroker kit for use on the EJ20 engines. Was said to out perform the EJ25 motors. This stroker kit is however no longer available.

Default Tommy kaira logo



I have bought a limited edition Subaru Forester about a year ago and 2lt and has a Tommy Kaira logo. Highlighted how rare it is but how do I go about finding out the authenticity of the car. By the way it's one fast ride. This is my 3rd Subi and it tops all three.
