ATS Aurora turbo questions - came on my new to me 06

Few questions about this turbo, as I have been looking for a few days to upgrade it. It is very laggy, takes a LONG time to spool any boost, and I'm lucky if I see 20psi out of it. Around town, 0-5psi seems to be what it's going at. Egt's are low, around 600 at 70mph.

My question is, is there something wrong with my truck, or is this just how this turbo is? I'm not exactly sure what series/model it is, but it looks pretty small compared to my buddies powermax.

I'm reading that these are decent units?

I've had the truck for about 4 days, only put about 50 miles on it.

We'll put it this way. I was pretty disappointed, as my cam'd silverado on 35s would knock the socks off this truck on a factory size tire. Both extended cab short beds.

If this is just the way it goes with this turbo, I pity the fool that paid $2600 for it.

IIRC, the ATS turbos for the 6.0 is non-VGT, you would need custom tunes to get the most out of that turbo. Even then, the Aurora 3000 is about the same size as the stock VGT.
