you are correct that it adds torque as the gear ratios act as a torque multiplier, but horse power is derived from torque, essentially torque over time (HP=torque * RPM / 5252). If you increase the torque, you increase the HP, and vice versa, but not neccesarilly you peak power. My statement was probably misleading.
