I think that makes sense. If they tuned the ZHP for high end horsepower, they probably gave up just a bit of low end torque.

I remember driving a friend's '92 Integra when I owned a '91 Integra. They bumped horsepower to 140 from 130 that year, but with less low end torque, I really felt like his car felt slower, even though by the numbers it was faster.
