Thunder vs BAK

Has anybody ever done a dyno comparison of the Thunder MFG Air Kit vs the Baron's Big Air Kit vs the Hypercharger?

I already have Vance and Hines exhaust and a Power Commander, so to finish uncorking the bottle I want to replace the absurdly convoluted factory air intake. My previous bike had a HyperCharger on it, which was OK I suppose, but I think I like the look of the Thunder or Baron's kits a little bit better. They seem like they would be a little thinner and and less complicated.

Is there a dime's worth of difference in performance in any of them? I was leaning towards the Thunder kit, but it seems to be unavailable currently.

I heard they were supposed to be opening back up, but they are not answering emails.
