I wouldn't go to this level, one must have some standard to do applications work. Most diesel applications have fairly large diameter straight on entry and discharge ducting.

What I found, my homegrown gas installation of discharging right into a bonnet ( pressure carb) allowed me to run an extremely high flowing compressor without surging. The paper match for this compressor was in surge its entire operation.

I reasoned the small inlet of the paper match compressor was seriously restricting my N.A. operation, therefore "boost response" so having the hardware readily available I began adding larger and larger compressors with more improvement with each change. Right up to the largest of the framesize. The turbo was the 3LDZ progenitor.
