It's my thought that the issue is exhaust velocity/volume...
-pipes too small=increased velocity/decreased volume-engine can't breath(like breathing out through a straw)
-pipes too large=decreased velocity/increased volume-exiting exhaust gasses can't help pull exhaust from the combustion chamber
-pipes just right=greatest volume and velocity ratio-engine likes!

...just my

i would think there is plenty in the turbo...you gotta figure...those exhaust gases are what is creating that 25+ psi of boost so that 25+ psi of boost is pushing back on the turbine wheel a bit. thats just my reckoning though.

thats they way i see it too turbodude...the exhaust up pipe is what turns the turbine wheel and as long as it has any sort of free flowing exhaust exiting the turbo it shouldnt matter..maybe if the uppipes were to big it would effect the turbo lag but then again ive heard theories on either way so i think we need some1 to dyno a 6.0 with large diam straight pipe and smaller diam pipe ...maybe even with a muffler to see what the gains are...for the sound of the 03 6.0 i dont think it would be worth it to put a muffler on it and lose the whistle IMO

ive hit 27psi with mbrp dp only going up a hill..but normally stay 24ish
