Without a doubt, but still worth every penny or pony.  We know our cars,
if HP was a concern we'd have jumped ship long ago.  As long as the AWD
system works it'll still put meg-HP Stangs and such that try to keep up
into the guard rail on exit ramps.  BTDT, purdy sparks @ night too.  The
roar of the intake is the icing on the cake as you pull away, if you get
a glimpse of the twenty something wondering how an "ancient" 4 door C-dan
just owned him...priceless.  

"In my many years I have come to a conclusion
that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, 
and three or more is a congress."
