Thought I'd chime in here, since I'm doing this myself with my 04 XT (2.5L). BTW, I'm Back Road Runner's brother. Like my brother had said, I'm running an EWG setup, so my plan is to run the upgraded turbo with the stock hot-side, unclipped. This should provide some nice low-end spool while the EWG will help with the top-end restriction... hopefully resulting in a nice wide powerband suitable for daily driving and auto/x.
Also, my car's in the shop getting the engine rebuilt, broken ring land on #4, damaged heads, and jumped timing... $$ OUCH $$. With the rebuild, I'm getting the intake and exhaust ported, along with TGV deletes. All of that should help with low-end flow and spool as well.
I'm expecting around 275whp on 92 oct, and full boost under 2500 RPM. Once my car is back up and running, I'll get her on the dyno and see what my setup can do. Should be interesting
