Here's the deal.  Your ECM is monitoring the gas exiting the cylinders
of the engine.  This is how the efficiency is monitored.  The ECM has
no way of knowing and doesn't care what the torque and horsepower are.
 If you improve the efficiency of the explosion by more completely
burning the fuel that enters the cylinder, the ECM detects this and
alters the amount of fuel entering the cylinder.  What you get is a
constant amount of energy generated with each ignition, but that
energy is created by burning more of less gas entering the cylinder.
Your ECM knows what to give you based on the relative position of the
throttle.  If you have the pedal all the way on the floor, it's
pumping in as much gas as you want.  If you are cruising, it's just
pumping in enough gas to maintain RPM.  If you are using water
injection, NOS, or any other explosion-additive, that "enough to
maintain RPM" is much less than a normal, less-efficient
