Its more gradual... I loved it, I will be showing pics of an hx60 on a suby... get ready for pics.
Eric, that HX60 will probably flow comparably with that S475 (75 or 85, don't recall) that you have.

As for the text from yesterday; I'd certainly hope that a 3.8L EG with an S475 is quicker than a 2.43 with an HX55
As for the spoolgate idea, tell your fab guy to size things correctly. I'd have used a 44-50mm gate for my crossover. The 60 might bleed pressure to quickly and prove to make tuning quite difficult...just a hint from someone that spent two years calibrating similar situations on diesel engines.
