My bottom end and top end are better, but I also have a shorter intake.
If a 2-stroke is anything like a car motor, I'm not surprised your top end is better. But I figured the bottom end would suffer a bit. Shorter intake = more high rpm hp but less low rpm tq. Longer intake = more low rpm tq, but less high rpm hp. For cars anyway. These darn 2-strokes are still new to me. I guess maybe the air filter alone helped your bottom end, and the shorter intake runner helped the top end.
