You lose a little low end power (not enough to worry about), but it will make up for it in the high end. Overall your 1/4 time will be lower with the Exhaust.

if you want low end power, aka torque, buy a V8. Or do an ls/vtec or mini me type swap. I've seen some setups make considerable torque over stock.

the timing advance i told you about will help considerably, just be sure to run premium gas.
