That is true, torque has a completely different feel when the car is pulling hard. Also, my car has no known issues or problems for those asking. No boost leaks, timing is set as advanced as I could get it before I got knock. The only weak link is the clutch, which is next to change along with an ACT flywheel. I just gotta figure out what clutch will hold w/o having the feel of a 2600lb pressure plate.
