And clipped or not that turbine is too restrictive and is sized well for the OEM compressor IMHO.
I've always been hesitant about compressor-only upgrades. I guess we'll see how this turns out very soon. I don't think we'll see the same gains with saw with the a full CHRA upgrade (ASR kit) but it is also much more affordable. It would be very cool if this gave us the same power at slightly less boost. Or another 30-40hp when turned up.
