Just thinking out loud.

We know the shorties out perform the stock J pipe system on HP, boost onset, & lag.

Most us us probably accept this system is a major performance improvement over a stock system just based on logic and the emotion of looks.

A test against the stock will only tell us what we already pretty much accept, that this system is better than stock.

Only doing that will leave open the real question most of us really want to know. Is it better than the current staple from B&B or GHL!

Testing against B&B or GHL in a head on with monitoring of 1) boost, 2) AFR, and it at all possible 3) back pressure in the headers before the turbo -- might tell us what we really want to know.

But only if we can accept that a credible effort was made.

In contrast. B&B compares there system to the ealy stock USA with thermal reactors. That is not a credible effort nor very useful.

Otherwise we are left to interpolate or guess if this system is better than the competition.

Thus, if there is only going to be one comparison, one against the real competition would be more usable.
