if you are really despirate...look here
The whole idea is to reduce power (reference point same rpm and same throttle opening). So to generate the same power (IOW what is needed at that point), you have to open the throttle more so volumetric efficiency goes up. Maybe.

There is no such thing as working harder. Power is power.
