Filippo, all noted thanks..when I did the same journey on the N20, I used a modestly uprated MHI version of the OE MHI turbo..there was a slight increase in lag and the torque curve moved fractionally to the right.They make the smaller setup for a reason. It's why I went with the HP650 over the HP800, given what I was looking to accomplish. And I discussed it with Omar as well, to get feedback, since it is his product line.
You might consider talking to TTE if you are looking to go that direction. You seem to have a strong idea of where you want to end up - that's to your advantage on these kinds of decisions.
There is a school of thought that suggests you move the torque curve to the right to avoid causing excess stress on the engine..the N20 was labelled as ‘fragile’..given the N54 reputation maybe thats not an issue here?
I’ll do some research on the TTE500 vs TTE600
