The answer is.....maybe. Based strictly on the turbine size - no, it won't spool earlier, but because it is a more efficient design, it 'might'.

All in all, most will quickly agree that you spent waayy too much for 'might'. If you dump another 6-8K into your motor in performance parts (assuming you don't need more for a typical overhaul), that turbo will perform great in a 450+ HP setup including cams, efi, exhaust, intercooler (prolly need bigger than the B&B drop in you also ordered), etc.....

And, something is wrong with your car if you have lag after you shift, say from 2-3 at 5K RPM or higher. Even the 3LDZ is spooled and on the wastegate at 5K - it should hit quick going from say 2-3 shift on a freeway ramp. I'd bet your diverter assembly is leaking boost....
