It has worked well on his build (3.45L EFI ITB), but not significantly better IMO than a GT35R such that I would spec one for my own 930.

Same for the BorgWarner EFR we just did. They spec'ed out their 35R-killer, it cost a lot more and was harder to fit, and didn't significantly out-perform our usual go-to setup.

We've now done 620whp on a 3.4L running e85, but if you've got a bigger engine or really hot build and need a bit more compressor wheel, Garrett has a new Gen-2 version with a larger compressor wheel inducer that will flow a bit more.
The 6262 is an absolute monster! I don't think highly of Precision, but I wouldn't kick it out of my bed if given to me.
