I can't seem to find anything, but I'm wondering if there is such a thing as a super lightweight large turbo? Wouldn't the lightweight turbines enable it to spool faster yet a larger turbine providing more boost? I've always heard about big turbos and the lag and small turbos but lower high end boost...is there ahybrid?..maybe made of titanium innards? Or should I start manufacturing them myself and make huge $$$$s? lol

this just in from a Mitsu site:
"A high-response titanium turbocharger gives better low-end and mid-range torque, using a smaller, shape-optimized compressor wheel. (Standard on GSR; factory option on RS)"

So apparently Titanium is an excellent choice for the turbines. Now if I can find a slightly larger turbo made with titanium impelers...just maybe, it would spool faster yet retain a higher end boost than the stock turbo?
