It's also interesting that all the aftermarket header manufacturers build their headers with T3 flanges (GHL, B&B, GSF, Schnell etc), except for fabricators like Marco Menzie and Bob Holcomb. I guess all the off-the-shelf stuff are design to be as bolt-on as possible, whereas MM & BH build their headers for big HP aftermarket applications.

I agree though... for a 3.3, 0.81/0.82 A/R seems to be the best sizing for good power and response. I went with 0.78 A/R because I wanted the divided inlet turbine housing to bolt right onto the GSF headers. Divided inlet housings are suppose to offer slightly improved spool-up too, I've read.
