Thanks Dropspeed:

Now we are getting a bit closer : reduced demands on the engine (no loss from a hydro pump as the assistance to steering is replaced by servos) plus a freer flowing exhaust.

Still not enough to account for three secs, yet as newb pointed out, it all adds up.

Yet I feel there is something amiss.

Safe driving!
