I believe you are dead-on with your guess. As to why this is important, I have no clue.

Any experiences from you guys on the matter?
I can only tell you that PPK stage 1 added that much thrill to my ride that I would easily exchange it for minus 30-50 hp at the crank for it (instead of adding 15 hp). What was the thrill? Exhaust note. Because I really don't know what to do with 30-50 hp "extra" in this country (U.S.), but that exhaust note puts the large grin on my face every day over 40 degrees F.
