Default 130whp alh vs 200whp alh

I know it's 70whp difference, and probably a good 100ft/lbs difference, but is there a big difference between a 5spd alh pushing 130whp vs a 5spd alh pushing 200whp? Is difference noticeable?

32B vs 34C...

And yeah, that's over a 50% hike in power. Pretty significant.

A 70 WHP (80 BHP) difference feels [is] huge.

That's like an ALH with small nozzles transforming to one with big nozzles, turbo, and tune.

I went from ~180 to ~130 recently when I found that my compressor was damaged. It was quite disappointing

Huge difference in power.

Hell yeah there's a difference. And if you drive it right things don't seem to break.
