Why the 03 turbo?

Whats the deal with the turbo from the 03. I seen that one has 10 vains where as the other 15. What is the gain from switching.

also, because there are less vains, there is less back pressure. slightly lower egts, slightly more hp.

Eh....I didn't notice anything other than whistle. I logged about 100k miles on a 05 turbo, then 40k on a 03 turbo, and am back on a 05 turbo for the past 5k miles.
