I haven't seen what you have done with a stock manifold, but I doubt it would compare equally to a Bob's ported Stage 3 manifold, just because of the turbine and scroll area differences that they start with. I was saying that less backpressure with a Stage 3 manifold at equivalent boost pressures could lend to easier tuning and a better chance at 28lbs on pump gas.
The price I had seen for a new Batmowheel is the equivalent of a nice used turbo of any size, so even if someone already had money sunk into getting their stock manifold ported and upgraded, it is something to think about. ~300whp isn't a whole bunch for spending a lot of money to get there with a Batmowheel, but a very nice torque curve could prove to be worth it in some people's eyes.
