The intake is just fine - I could make an additional 15HP at great expense, if I went with 2.5" piping from the turbo to the throttlebodies, which would require new intercoolers, new piping, new throttlebodies, and then hogging out the plenum.

I should make my power goals easily with the setup I have now, though, and not have to worry about fabricating the spaghetti-plate of pipes through my engine bay.

The exhaust turbines are about the same size - both are T25 housings, it's just the compressor side that's bigger.

Putting attention there is polishing something that's already pretty damned good - the Z32 has a dual throttlebody setup, and where you see significant improvements across the whole powerband is when you go dual air intakes up front (which is in the plans).
