I have to admit I'm on weak ground here due to a shortage of btdt, but
I did qualify my opinion with "Depending on your performance criteria, ..."
Clearly the smaller K24  shifts the power band toward lower rpm and,
as you say, transforms the car. If you are more interested in performance
on the track where the rpm can be kept in the higher ranges, the K26
should provide greater maximum power assuming parity in all other
mods. Apologies to Misa for mentioning adnoH.
