15% improvement without a full boat tail? I don't know. Certainly not with straight, 10 degree plan taper. Of course the FA addition is only 5% of the original, but then you'd have to get over 10% aero improvement to make up for that. It'll be interesting to see. I hope these mods are un-boltable so he can do ABA testing.
