WITCHERY!!!

That's not only hard to watch, it's confusing. It defies everything I thought I knew about flow. I'd be interested to see just a cold flow bench test on only the headers, before and after the mangling. I still don't think I would ever "compress" a header, my mind would never be at peace with that.

Well, first off I won't pay a bunch of money to destroy a header to make it fit(and it just makes it ugly) I'll just buy one that fits, lol.. But I wouldn't mind doing that test in the "real" world at the track, clocks don't lie.. ;) :D
