Sorry, my assumption was if comparing equal builds except the 3.0 at stock 6.5/1 and the 3.3 at stock 7/1 compression.

The 3.0 will not have as much exhaust volume and a given boost thresh hold is probably going to be at about 10 - 12% higher RPM.

This might effect the turbo chosen. Try putting a 7006 K29 on it and it would probably dog until close to 4k rpm.

The 3.o shorter stroke and stronger rods lends its self well to making power at a higher rpm.

With out a small turbine and a bump in compression is it going not going to be able to match a similar build on a 3.3 in terms of boost response off idle.

Just a guess.
