Right, and that's the other thing about turbochargers, they are a compromise,
hogging out the compressor housing of a K24 won't help it spool up any
faster, the lag characteristic is in the turbo - the turbine and compressor
trim, diameter, and AR ratios, etc, just changing the inlet diameter is like
putting a 3" piece of hose on the end of a 20' long piece of 2" hose to
increase the flow of the 2"
