```Um, I think not... The mean of the last 200 observation won't line up with the x and z.

Possibly, if what you want is the last 200 obs to have a different variance,

y_obs <- y_model + c(rnorm(0.9 * n, 0, 0.1), rnorm(0.1 * n, 0, 0.5))

or

y_obs <- rnorm(n, y_model, rep(c(0.1, 0.5), c(.9 * n, .1 * n)))
