Will wiring a unipolar stepper to a bipolar stepper loosedriver decrease the holding torque?

I have read that you can wire a unipolar stepper to a bipolar driver, which I have, by ignoring the two extra wires. One concern I have is I'm wonderingwhether connecting a unipolar stepper to a bipolar driver will cause it to lose torque if I connect a unipolar stepper to a bipolar driver, will I loose torque (holding or operating)? Will it be the same? Increase?(holding or operating)?

Will it be the same? Increase?

I've read that bipolars are more bang for your buck energywiseenergy-wise, and since you can "transform" a unipolar stepper to a bipolar good enough that the driver will still work right, I would think that it might run more efficiently. Is this true?Is this true?
