Why not go with an external wastegate?
Other turbo options?

The moral of the story is that 3" exhausts are FTW.

Sure, but my 2.5" system is not spooling too bad, especially with a 2560 (compared to a 2554) and a cast manifold. And, it is quiet, not much louder than stock really, and very non-rice.

Makes me want to unbolt the DP flange at the cat and log the spool to see if it makes much difference.

Sorry I'm late to post to this thread. I would like to see my line if that's ok with the powers that be. These numbers are from the last MT.net northeast dyno day in April. 4th gear pull I think. WG solenoid duty cycle is around 50% until it gets close to 14 (TPS based boost target) then it slows down...made 13.3 max. I could probably get better spool by clamping the WG DC to 100% until a few psi before target like you guys do with your megasquirt or like a ball/spring MBC.
