BTW, I'm not saying your product is not good, but we all have to be very careful about how we run tests like this to make sure they're fair. I don't want this to turn into another Garage Tuning fiasco .

I wouldn't bet on that. Look at the 41-4700 range, it makes more boost as well but a little less power. The spool looks about right for the perrin header, and the boost curve looks pretty smooth for having a pre-turbo exhaust/boost leak. The power gain up top is also pretty substantial, I doubt the 1/2psi more boost is making the power gain, look at the gain past 6200 were the boost is virtually the same.

My opinion would be that Chris built himself a good working header.
I wouldn't mind swapping out my Tomie and trying the KillerB out on my XT
