I would be surprised as well to not feel a difference, but even at 50whp a 335 is going to walk you hard, that's a HUGE weight difference to account for. I believe it's nearly 1400 lbs. An old metric that I was once told was 10lbs/hp for a simple comparison. So to really keep up with a 335 you need 140hp (ballpark) to account for the weight.
