Ok guys and gals!!

One of the members here decided it was time and stepped up to the plate! I should have a set of Sikky headers in my hand in 2-3 weeks!!!! I will be installing them on his car, dynoing, then installing the Elite headers and dynoing on the SAME DYNO!!! SAME ALTITUDE!!! SAME FUEL, SAME CAR!!!!.. I am excited because I have this weird feeling that altitude is a major factor... We will find out in a few weeks!! The test car will not be Splats, it will be an intake exhaust car.

STAY TUNED!!!!

Ok, but to be fair we need to have a third party do it. It's way to easy to manipulate dyno #'s and the only way it could be done with a true # is to have a third party with no connection or knowledge of either company or header. We will order one from you and have a third party do it as well and see what results we get on the east coast. I can say from experience that altitude should have nothing to do with the results, especially since the difference from Baltimore to Minneapolis is only 800ft. When can you ship us a set to have tested? I'm sure one of our test customers would allow us to switch ours out for yours and get some concrete data.

an altitude difference of 800ft would result in a hp difference of 3.3%.

so a stock isf with 416hp SAE at sea level would have 402hp SAE 800ft up.

Sounds like an excellent idea. I agree about a 3rd party doing the testing. Can't wait to see the results.

I'm willing to do an installation for elite headers or sikky once I get in touch with them and ask them a few questions. I'll have numbers with a/f ratio since both parties haven't released these numbers.

i believe sikky should have to buy a set from elite since i had to buy a set of sikkys so elite can test them....btw this will tell all to the community

This is a cool idea, sikky can install the shorty headers and shorty can install sikky headers. Then we can see the true results from both. IMO both are great products this is definately my next mod. Kudos to both Sikky and Elite. Thanks for the hard work guys....

I like the friendly rivalry between the two vendors on here. Either way WE are the winners with two great companies. I'm more curious about the sound level differences between the two.

I agree with the comment that third party should be testing!. I'm in the automotive industry and numbers can easily be manipulated! all these manufactured numbers mean nothing till dyno'ed by third party! Why do you think KN have such high claims for hp gains! ie my 28 hp gain with my typhoon..

If I wanted to inflate my numbers I would have inflated the numbers to make more power than Sikky......

You will get far more credibility going to third party. Inflated or not true numbers will come from somebody not BIASED! I for one am one of the people waiting for headers but want to see numbers as sikky;s numbers are way to high for it's modes and engine size!

The results that SIKKY claims are inline with my testing as a 3rd party. Trust me I was skeptical and in my mind only expecting to see maybe 25rwhp, but I was proven wrong. The SIKKY headers are the real deal and the gains that they claim are not inflated.

caymandiver,

I think your results are good.. I honestly think Sikky's make the power your car made. The problem is why are mine so much less when my engineer says that our design is so much better... Also, its funny to me that your chart looks NOTHING like the one for japs car. His only really makes power up top... I just find that funny.

^^^probably just the difference in Dyno's and settings, that would be my guess.

Get'em both on the same dyno. I wouldn't think anyone would want to ruin their reputation by lying, especially when it's the manufacturer's reputation on the line. Word will travel fast. Besides, eventually a couple of us will own the different products and get together and dyno them.

Jaslapp1 and I dyno'd on the same dynapack.
