The power is definitely a lot more intensive, it's literally 'shit your pants' fast which I still have not fully gotten used to. Switched it back to stock last week just to compare and god damn it feels like a slug on Map 0.
Actually, after driving my car today i noticed that power doesn't really taper off after 5000-5500rpm. What i should of probably said was that power doesn't increase any more, or rather doesn't get any more urgent after reaching this rpm range, unlike some other high revving engines which i have driven in the past. The power band stays flat and linear whilst still pulling all the way to redline.
