Peak power yes (assuming it's similar to the JBA 4-1 header), average power across the power band no. The SVT header out performs every other one in average hp and tq across the power band where you spend most of your time driving. Though that being said anything will perform better than the stock stuff.

I do notice my car currently with its setup lacks power until 3000 rpm. I'm looking to produce power from around 3000 to 7000 anyways. This car will end up no t being a daily anymore and only be driven for meets and taking to the strip. I just want somthing that I enjoy regardless of how much faster it is that anyone else's car.

Ok ok, most stuff, is that better? Even a shorty header will get some gains over the factory one, albeit very small, that's all I'm saying about that. No need to open a can o' worms lol

Iminhell , I still have that thing sitting around , it was just to costly to pay the guy that owned the rights to the mandrel square piping and the labor to build the header , I was glad I made one just to see what it will do

You should see what it made on my 572 cubic inch big block over a cooks custom header lol , downside is the harmonics that passes through a square header rips it apart over time

Yes.
IIRC you have to add a bit of length to the rear of the hatch exhaust so it sticks out the bumper a bit.

It's a neat, sorta, design. And I'm not sure many really got a chance to see it.
I still can't figure it out. Defies logic.
