I'm with you here. I think it will help the motor to spin up a little quicker and with my cvt it should "catch" sooner so with better throttle response it should be more fun. I wouldn't mind a few extra mpg's either.

No real hp gains will ever be seen on this model. Make it more fun to drive. Youll never get much "faster"
