Helix comparison

Has any one here done a comparison, back to back on the different helix spacers?
Are all helix's the same as far as out put goes ?
Has anyone tried to make their own and have any results?

Maybe not at the top, but 5 kw should be felt through out the rev range.

Has anyone noticed much improvement with just adding a helix and no other mods at the same time?

Thanks again
I'm asking so many questions as I have recently purchased a pursuit, but I'm also going to try to mod a few BA's through my workshop, but I only want to give my customers proven products, not just something that a salesman
says is good

The Herrod Helix on my car did give me a 3-4 MPH average on the strip.This was in conjunction with a SS CAI unit.I used to run around the 106-108 mph and with the HELIX installed it runs 110mph every pass. This may vary though on different cars.
