I'd expect a free'er flowing head pipe to provide a reduction in torque.
What your talking about won't be a very big change but may move the torque curve a few rpm's higher.

My thoughts..

I think so also, the free-er you let the exhaust out in the head pipe the more torqe you lose down low, overall the rest of the exhaust is smaller wich also may affect things.
