Yes , the 10cm is exactly that. Larger Inlet passage 06h wheel,I also had the wastegate hole area opened and The attempt was to get the gases moving as quickly as possible while keeping backpressure at bay. Kinda of a best of boost worlds so to speak.
True there are plenty of different brands that could have fit the bill, but as hotrodding goes do more with less.

How are you monitoring backpressure? What numbers have you seen?

On factory type turbos one old trick was to open the inlet ports to the turbine wheel.

Have you considered going to a more efficient turbine wheel instead? Td06sl2 maybe?
Also tuning could be an issue why the turbo isnt as lively.
