Wonder if the shortened inlet will have the same effect as on my G13b,there is a noticeable difference in low down torque between the GT and the Esytate and it is not down to ratios as the GTi gearbox and the GLS gearbox have the same 1st,2nd and 3rd.But once you get over 5kRPM it is less noticeable but the 25mph in 5th is not an option.
