From the picture the technology looks quite simple, but i'm sure it's a mess to figure out. I've got to give it a shot though in nothing else.
Hmm...Garrett's antisuge channels actually portrude to compressor blades. Turbonetics mumbojumbed intake looks like nothing else but few holes not actually connecting anything?

Frankly, I'm quite skeptic when it comes to aftermarket modifications of turbochargers. There are heaps of shops claiming to "improve" turbochargers but they cannot prove anything. No maps, no nothing. Turbocharger test rigs cost millions of dollars and these guys only machine a couple of grooves and claim it's "a black art". Clipping wings is probably the worst "improvement". It buggers up the efficiency but pushes the surge line somewhat...
Thank you for your time,
