Turbo porting question. Need advice.

I have my turbo apart and I'm waiting on my mtw billet wheel to come In. While I'm looking at it, I see that there is a lip going around the compressor housing. My question is, would there be any gains to be had by cutting the lip off and smoothing out the area?

Its hard to put into words, so here's some pictures. It's the lip that the screwdriver is pointing to. I've done porting on 4 stroke dirt bike engines, but never turbos. Just curious to see what could happen.

Well I did it. I didn't take pictures though

With the mtw billet wheel she spools much much faster and pulls harder. Idk how much my porting helped, but I'm happy with it.

I cut the lip from around the compressor housing. It took about 4 hours. I took a gnarling bit and ground the casting away and then smoothed it all out. I really regret not taking picture of the finished product.

While I can't tell the location where you ported it, I would take it apart and address that corrosion to the right of that bolt hole. It looks like a corrosion pit from here. Depending on what it takes to clean it up, you could fill it with epoxy or JB Weld once it's all removed.
