and you can setup a 20g in any of these configs

2.4" inlet td05 7cm
2.4" inlet td05 8cm
3.0" inlet td05 7cm
3.0" inlet td05 8cm

2.4" inlet td06 7cm
2.4" inlet td06 8cm
3.0" inlet td06 7cm
3.0" inlet td06 8cm

basically you can get any 18g configuration power curve by using a 20g
benefit of the 3" inlet?

So lets say your looking to lose minimal spool buy stepping up up to a 20g from a vf turbo. You decide you want the smaller compressor td05 and the smaller exhaust housing 7cm, but then why would you get a 3" inlet? Just wondering why the option is there and if and where its wise to go 3" over 2.4".
