Is the mitochondrial presequence is baisc and is energy required to chop of the presequence?

Yes, mitochodrial presequence is basic. Removing the presequence involves hydrolyzing a peptide bond between two amino acids. Breaking a covalent bond is exergonic. Exergonic reactions do not require a source of energy to drive them.
