Plus if Naoya Gamou is transfer to Toyota or Lexus team , then LEON AMG is the best choice for him because of Brigdestone tires.
Phoneix Racing will be a 'unlikely' option for him in case they have a Deep driver line up

So it means that Toyota might enter WTCR race series by this engine right? If it is then we looking forward for Toyota to participate WTCR.

No. This is customer-use engine.
So TRD wants to sell engine itself.
WTCR is one of the possible use.

I think some of the TCR cars aren't factory backed or made, so maybe some team kits out a gt86 and puts that engine in there?

The GT86 could not race in WTCR the rules demand 4 or 5-door cars.

Maybe my post caused misunderstanding.
Supply to WTCR is not the main objective.
TRD's chart means that the power band of TG20 is equivalent to that of WTCR.
TRD says that TG20 is the successor racing engine of 3S-GTE.
It will be mainly used as a replacement engine for tuning cars.

Ohhh , Finally I understand

Which means that that engine is replacing 3S-GTE by using TG20. With using this engine , they can use to rival EVO, Subaru WRX STI, Ford Focus RS and so on.

I wasn't being specific, just throwing out a Toyota car. They would probably make a tcr from the auris or a team make the avensis like the one used in btcc.
