I bet with those turbos though the off idle performance will punch your eyes through the back of your head. Can you say instant boost.
I can get my hands on a pair of those GT25VNTs for my 3.6L but have the same concern regarding size. Still, that small compressor housing T25 can feed a lot more air than looks suggest and I'm sure they are no smaller than the K16s I'm setting up now. I'll get one and get reacquainted with the specs.
The vanes on the Chrysler/Dodge were ECU map set using vac however they can be controlled with pressure like a W/G. The canister is twin port allowing part throttle open vanes also. This is a big plus W/Gs dispensed with years ago. Don't know why.
