you will notice but only for a short while before you again become used to it....that's the reason we keep modding...to keep the feeling alive .

Can you really feel a difference on the street between 30HP???
Mainly on the top end (as in freeway driving) you'll feel 30 TQ more in the **** than 30 HP since TQ is what gets you moving from a dead-stop or slow roll)
