It will make a difference, but not as much because yours isn't restricted as it is. Not sure what your engine braking is like...and you'll still see gains from a better A/F table

Bigger issue would be where in South Africa you are, you'll lose about 20% power if you're up in Jo'burg than at the coast for example, due to the altitude
