Sorry. Missed that thread as there was no description in the title.

I myself prefer the low mounts and have the sato lows, but there are both options now for the SP2.

Whichever you prefer, kudos to Simon and LBP for producing all three variations, from low-mount, to high-mount, to HRC replica.

How do the high mounts compare in HP numbers to the regular mount? In racing I've always learned that the less bends you have the better, but is that also true in these, or are these some magical pipes?

From what I know the lowmount Sato made more power than the banzai mount...so I will hazard a guess and say the same is true for the Ladybirds.

Agree on the Satos part, but I believe that the birds have a larger core, 60mm over the Satos 58mm, if I remember reading right. I dont have a set of ladybirds and I haven't mic'd my Sato low. I know we're only talking about a 3% difference in volume, but over 400mm+ that would change the flow characteristics immensely.
