Bigger turbo tends to need more exhaust pressure/velocity to spin up than smaller ones I thought?

If bigger turbo can flow waaayy more air in same amount of time given a static volume to fill, then it will cause more pressure hence opens up the WG more/longer.

But neither directly relates to how more air actually got into the chamber at same pressure & time, unless (as I "discover" now - not sure if its right) that the small turbo didn't really fill the chamber as full as the big one before the valve closes.
