sure it does.
I forget what site it was, but a bunch of v6ers with 16g mitsu turbos. The 16g is a very capible turbo, and can hit full 20psi by 2500rpm on a 2.0L motor, and move in upwards of 40-45lbs/min(basically able to support 400-450hp). So basically on a 3.8 TT setup youd have 1.9L per turbo, which would be pretty much equal. On a v6 i would go TT with two smaller mitsu turbo's which will be a very good setup and last you pretty far, and if you need more, you can always upgrade to twin BB 50 trims or such, and its cheap and easy since youre still on the mitsu flange.
now youre above statement is what i ask everytime i see a 1.6l honduh with a huge 60trim (not even ball bearing mind you), youre like wtf. ive honestly seen one with a turbo so large, he had 1000rpm to play with once it spooled before he had to shift. ran a 16 second quarter because it was so slow and laggy under the curve, and it just roasted the fronts when it finally hit.
