I agree GJF, but, and this is what I think JFairman is getting at, is that if at WOT and say 6K RPM you have 1bar of boost measured at (inside) the inlet manifold and providing the charge intake temperature is the same temperature at (inside) the manifold, then how can one turbo make more power than another? Beats me anyway...
The only other explanation is if the smaller turbo is restricting the exhaust getting out of the engine as the bigger turbo will open up the wastegate more than the smaller turbo which needs all the exhaust it can get to maintain turbo speed and therefore cold side flow.
