For that one I dont really have a input. But both are great manufactures. It would be nice to see a comparison of both on the same dyno same day, but that will almost be imposable to have happen.
The APS comes with a higher pressure WG actuator, Inconel wheel, in house casting of the Hot sides. Im assuming that the wheel design is different from one to the other, so that will effect peak HP and the way the turbo spools up. So the Bloush might make more top end power, and the APS might spool up faster. But with out having both turbos tested back to back on the same model car with the same mods its hard to tell.
However the APS seems to be cheaper, and already comes with a upgraded actuator at no extra cost, and also includes a oil line with it.
