True, but IAG was only running a little under 22 psi on that 35R set up, if I remember right, the psi set on these Dom 3.0XT-R was in the neighborhood of 26. There is a big difference there. Physically, you can't tell me that a 2.4 inch inlet will perform that same as a 3.0 inch inlet if all things were equal. Change the wheel out on the 35R and you have something like the HTA 35R that will outperform that all day long.

Don't get me wrong, I really like blouch turbos, I had one on my last car and would consider another one on my car now. It's a great stock location turbo! Something that the subie community has been waiting for! But if you take the same turbo set up and rotate it, it's going to perform better 90% of the time.
