I appreciate your input. I really do not know. Just going on the wheel sizes and maps for the cold side.

Can you elaborate.

My thinking, for what it your conclusion makes sense for the cold side. Looking at the maps for the 7200 and Large GT30 they almost look the same.

What about the hot side? I suspect that the restriction on a 7200 is the hot side, not so much the cold side.

The 7200 and 7006 have almost the same size cold sides. The extra 20-30hp for the 7006 seems to me mostly from a less restrictive hot side.

The LARGE GT30 has a larger turbine than the 7200 and some choice of AR's.

I am thinking it is about the same size turbo as a 7006, maybe just a little bit bigger.

The hope is the faster spool ball bearing center section and maybe more modern and efficient wheels would give it the early hit of a K27-7200 and the HP range of the 7006 or just a little bit more.

The HF and GT35's would of course be a significant step up but maybe more than some of the CIS crowd needs.

The real test would probably have to be a back to back on a real car.

Just a thought.
