I was considering this, but it seems to fall on it's face a bit.
I'm not knocking the setup, it's very well thought out for auto-x, and it's a torque monster down low. I was considering it, I want to see a tuned 39 on a 2.0 with similar mods post a mustang dyno sheet, posted next to one of these.
Yes it was tuned, I believe it was running 19 or 20psi and was tuned by the same tuner within the same week (Doug from TopSpeed was the tuner) I have not seen too many 2.0l VF-39 WRXes with these mods run 300whp
exactly how much more does the 39 flow over the hybrid setup if the 19T flows 31lb/min? and there is a way it makes more power because the facts are right in your face...

here yea go, this is a 03 WRX with supporting mods running a 16g (maybe EvoIII I can't remember) compared to the 19T hybrid. The spool is still faster it makes slightly less hp and with the TD05 hot side it fall off 250rpm later... all in all I'm happy with the setup, the 16g is a great turbo but for $300 less you really cant beat this turbo for a bang for buck on any 2.0l...
Also, I thought you guys might like seeing some side by side shots of the 19T next to a standard TD04
and a sweet shot of my engine bay
