Yep....its all about the amount of air moved, and not the boost.

Hell...with cam phasing on the V6 you can change that and cause an increase of boost pressure (b/c of less air getting in) and make less power.

Agree.

Only takes 8 - 9 lbs to make 475 - 500 crank HP on the DI V6.

That same efficency applied to 6.2L would be over 850 HP.

It was only going to flow 32 PPM. because of compressor wheel size, turbine wheel size, etc. I then up graded to a Tdo5 that was capable of flowing 38 pounds per minute of air. The TDo4 turbo was capable of 300whp max on the 2.4 liter SRT-4 motor with supporting mods. The Tdo5 was capable of 400whp. Both turbos were capable of making 20 pounds of boost. Think about this. Would you rather have the tiny turbo off a Mini Cooper making 20 pounds of boost or a much larger turbo only making 10 PSI but flowing twice as much air?
And that is what I was saying...just in a different way. My bad on the confusion.

No problem. Just took a while to see where each other was coming from. Happens all the time on this forum.
