Regarding your 335, I ran similar numbers at 16psi (V5, AA DP's, Helix FMIC, AE Exhaust, AFE intake) on my n54??

Look at the numbers the Helix & RB turbo numbers thats with marginally more flow.. its entirely feasible.

Your looking at it like everything else is comparable when its not.

Optimize intake, cooling, exhaust and add larger capacity turbo's... your there.

The compressor side can be larger as long as the hotside ar stays reasonable. Your not dropping in a turbo from a dyno queen here, no T70 here with some enormous ar.
I agree it will flow better than the n54/n55 BMW variant but no way is it going to see anywhere near 600 FBO. Haven't you seen what's happening to the new M5's? A lot of boost from the factory and already optimized and therefore tuning is not yielding significant gains.

Btw my n54 only peaked at 19psi and tapered to yours.
