I would like to see as well though for the file, but that's just my prediction.
The GTX aero doesn't improve spool-up, per se. The idea was to make a higher flowing, more efficient wheel in the same size package as the older GT stuff.

However, you could improve spool if you look at it slightly differently. If you had a "regular" GT3076R, and replaced it with the GTX3071R you would have a 5mm smaller wheel...hence faster spool-up.

And, you get the same / slightly higher max flow. And higher compressor efficiency, leading to lower charge-air temps, hence higher midrange torque and the ability to run more timing.

You'd also get better transient response too (which doesn't show up on a map or dyno graph). Cruising along at part throttle, if you go to WOT immediately, the turbo will respond faster and you'll get more torque "on demand."
