Probably less than you would expect.
You would get a violent reaction to give lithium fluoroantimonate and (if the acid were in excess) diisopropylammonium fluoroantimonate.
However I suspect the reaction between, for example, sodium hydroxide and sulphuric acid might be more violent.
The stupidly expensive reactants would release more energy (though possibly not much more) but the energy would be shared out among a larger number of atoms so the overall rise in temperature might actually be smaller.

Don't try this at home.
(Don't try it anywhere else either).

Dag nabbit!

I wish I'd read all of your post before I rushed up to the corner shop.

Now what am I gonna do with all this fluoroantimonic acid and lithium diisopropylamide?

super acid + super base = super neutralization
