Nope, except high rpm causes slightly faster aging

Sport mode

Sport mode is much more fun! However, you will see slightly worse gas mileage because of the higher RPM. From what I have seen, I get about 2mpg less in sport mode around town. I typically use sport mode around town and regular mode on the interstate.
