Sorry, I believe the Garrett can be upgraded to a larger wheel but requires more modification than the Mitsu. I omitted the Garrett because the price you quoted appeared way to low for that upgrade.The T25 Garrett housing is machined out and a T28 compressor and turbine is installed. The T28 does not reference the Mitsubishi discussed t22 wheel. Google performance Saab Jak Stoll. Jak was a frequent poster and a great help back in the heyday of Saab performance. He helped "figure it all out". With regard to the 22T wheel size...everyone has their own performance goals and driving style-going bigger nets more top end performance but takes heroic efforts to avoid the lag associated with this size wheel which adds to the cost. I have a slightly modified stock downpipe and BSR exhaust, cone air filter (not "open") and 20 lbs of boost using the stock tune in the 9000 (the fuel cut-off boost limit was changed). Because it's a 15T, the boost hits very hard and punches the car very quickly from 45 to ~110 miles per hour. The requirement to exceed this speed does not exist for me. I realize this description is subjective and pretty much meaningless without a reference. Here is the reference: I also own a 9-3 Viggen with forged pistons, the alloy flywheel, the larger injectors, a "billet" 19t with, not the # 6 mitsubishi Aero exhaust housing, but the larger #7, plus Jak's really big inner cooler and Stage 4/5 tuning.I would say that within "my window" of driving the 9000 boost hits sooner, hits harder, and covers more ground until the upper reaches of the speedometer.The Viggen is still a blast to drive but it's currently not as useful or as quick as the 9000. More heroic/better engineering tricks (or a T5 9-3) needed to overcome the 19T low end lack of performance. Naturally, I have a plan but...this is the 9000 board. The jump to highest horsepower output available leaves you with a car that may or may not be enjoyable to drive in a manner which allows one to retain one's insurance rate.
