Upgrade Compressor Housing

I was looking at these. Do they help very much or not? id prob be better off just buying a dif turbo cause i no it will help. I met a guy who had an 01 with edge comp and 100hp sticks and he had a different compressor housing and said that it only gets past 1200 when pulling a loaded gooseneck. forgot to ask which level he was on the edge.

They help at higher rpms. They aren't that good for towing since you the low end. They are a trade off, you loose low end and gain top end cooling. The more low-end you give up the more top-end you gain. I think of them as a temporary fix untill you save the money for a real turbo.

Even w/ a bigger turbo you trade low end for top end but a bigger turbo also has a bigger compressor and can supply more air instead of just letting more exhaust out. Thats just my take on housings though.
