BD twins versus HX35/HX50 twins.
Now that the BD twins are out and proven I would like to ask this question again. I know that 3b's are dirt cheap dinosaurs and everyone uses them because of cost. But if you are only looking for 450 to 500 usable hp, what would be wrong with a small wheel 35 and an HX50 sized turbo on the bottom with wastegates on both? A 50 is supposed to be good for at least 550 hp. Wouldn't it spool quite alot easier than a 3b? If egt's at 450hp to 500 hp can be controlled with a pair of S300's, I don't see why a 35 and an hx50 or any of the 1000 or so cfm turbos couldn't accomplish the same task. It might make for a better towing setup having more power available in the 10 to 30psi boost range.
