All of the above is based (to some extent) on the fixed vane geometry
kkk turbos we all use.  Now if some enterprrising metal worker/engineer
came up with adapters to let us use some serious high tech 'mericun
turbos we could, perhaps, have it both ways.  They have already done
this for 911T's, and regularly replace KKK's with domestics, which
you can even get compressor maps for!
