Yeah this is a mod that'll get you very noticable gains, but even comparing it to a real replacement headers... Totally another league.
don't know about optimum design but there was a thread a while back in which a race team picked oem catless headers instead of supersprint. I don't believe anyone thinks they are optimum.
That would be due to cost, ss headers are an unbelievable ripoff, something like 2.5 or 3k
