I personally love having the most power available as early as i can. That way it is up to me on how to use it. I see no point in tuning for more power, and then not wanting it. If i don't want to use all 400+, then i don't apply 100%. But i guess thats just me
Here the thing though, you have enough tq to rip apart the street tires or slicks either way. Having 380 vs 450 tq at 3k makes no difference, both will spin tires if you load up the car and floor it off a light.
