    This is what a tri-y looks like compared to a 4-1. just locate a dyno for 4-2-1 if you want a full comparison (google images is great).

    Very bad comparison IMO. In general; given similar dimensions, the 4-1 has more top end than the 4-2-1/tri-Y; with the 4-2-1 having better mid/low.

    With different designs, diameters, bends, etc. it's pretty much negligible.

    Tri-Y looks sick, and it seems a lot of people use them for high power N/A motor builds.
