They basically do the same thing, based on the same technology - and are about the same size/weight.

Not a great deal of difference. Some header/size differences with the bigger engine sizes.

The PSP mufflers are based on Nelson designs. The Jett mufflers are ... well... Jett designed.

Construction and assembly is a bit different, but both are pretty robust - they stay together and are durable.

Either is availble for just about any engine you might have. Either is available as speed or torque versions.

Tech support from Shadel and Jett is about the same.

Sorta comes down to whether you want unfinished aluminum or red anodized

What engine and application do you have in mind here?

I have used both on Irving 53, TP 46, Webra 35, OS 46 and jetts 35, 50 and 90. Do not perfer one over the other except the jett is just as good as the other, and a little less expensive. Have had 0 problems with the Jett, had a rear cone fall off the other. They sent me one right after a phone call.

It's going on a Thunder Tiger Pro .46 ABC in a F-20 Tiger Shark. I've noticed that a lot of people are using the Jett-Stream on there f-20's. I like these two because they are like a tuned muffler but not as big and heavy. If they're the same, I'll probably go with the Jett since it's about 15 bucks cheaper.

I have had both and the pressure fitting on the Jett is in a better/easier to get to location. Other then that they both worked great.
