I found these 2 vids on the YF-16 and YF-17 by NASA. Pretty interesting....

Looks like the YF-17 was the clear winner there.

Likely the only part of the envelope where it was better. The F-16 sure out-performed it everywhere else, and the air force certainly made the right choice. The Navy got sloppy seconds, LOL.
