Dutteweiler did a comparision a few years back and witnessed a 50HP per 5mm increase. As far as being sluggish It isn't likely as there are no transfer slots or fuel wells that are relying on velocity to help atomization.This is another big plus with electronic fuel injection.
The N/A response was not impaired?
