Precision Or Comp Turbo?

I have been going around about turbos trying to make up my mind, I have been looking at a Precision pt8847 and pt8285 and now a Comp Turbo 88mm. Please help me decide for my Ford 327 with some TFS heads that flow 300 and [email protected] lift. The Comp Turbo seems to spool faster due to it's lighter internals. Which turbo to get?

The only one I can speak on it the pte 88-47. I ran it on a 402 lsX setup and it made 940rwhp threw a th400. The turbo is awesome it hits hard and spools nasty fast but I'm not sure how quick it would spool on a 327.

I ran a CompTurbo 80mm Triple ball bearing in my 01 cobra. People would not believe how fast it spooled, it was in full boost by 1800rpms. I believe they told me it had 1100 hp capability, i was only around 500-550 hp @ 10 lbs when i was running it
