If the there is a bottleneck like a restrictive IC or a intake manifold, then, two different turbos of different sizes would see the same volume of air at 15 psi because of the restriction. if there is no restriction then the larger turbo will produce more power because it is pumping more volume. If you want to make huge power with EFI and all the bells and whistles then a large frame turbo is in order because the more boost you want then you need a larger compressor so it won't heat the charge temps to the point that it is heat soaked. the larger turbos help keep the charge temps cooler as they don't over spin the compressor causing the charge temps to skyrocket
