But having driven my car and a local friend's 2.0L with a 16G-XT I'll take the 19T. The way the cars were tuned they were very close in peak power/air flow. The 19T provided better throttle response. Of course my results are a little skewed as the turbine housing was ported and polished and coated.
Just what did your 19T and the 16g-XT make? Also, a baseline stock number for the dyno would help.

Talking to my tuner the 19Ts he tuned couldn't beat a vf39, any of the 16gs outran them. On his dyno: stock 2.0L 175whp, tuned TD04 240whp, best TD04/19T ~270whp, VF39 290whp, 16gEVOIII 310whp+
