I think I've seen that before, but, like you, have never found any results.

If we ever go deleted, I'd probably want to go full stupid.

There are one or two guys on the Facebook group who have installed it. It spools louder but the housing limits airflow so there isn't a noticeable performance gain from it.

If you do not get the new wheel balanced properly to the turbine and rest of the turbo you run the risk of the wheel getting wrecked.

So, it sounds like an actual turbo upgrade would be far more useful (albeit far more expensive). And then a larger downpipe, at the very minimum.

Agreed. There are rumors of a plug and play turbo from Europe that would work but I don't believe anyone has tested it. It is a GTB1756v built for an Insignia.

It more than likely is - but I don't think anyone has ever found out...yet.

Per a document I found, that max torque is 332 lb-ft (in the SRX Turbo - the Regal's was rated at 295 lb-ft - different RPO code).
