Pure Stage 2 vs TTE460 vs TTE550

Hello everybody,
I'm thinking of upgrading my N55's turbo. I've always wanted to go Pure Stage 2 but never did it because of the price tag. Here in Europe, TTE is way more affordable.
Now I discovered what TTE offers. Does anybody have figures about it? How does it compare to the Pure Stage 2?

My car is FBO and I plan no other mods than a LPFP upgrade, at least for now...

Thanks in advance

Pure is the most reliable upgraded turbo option in my opinion

You lucky guy you! I just installed TTE Stage 2 turbos on my FBO N54 about 4-5 months ago. They've performed very well with no issues themselves (my LPFP went out a week later, then my fuel sensor, but that's kinda indirectly related but expected). On a Dyno, I've never hit 500hp (3 attempts now) but on the street the car performs very well. My tuner/installer said it definitely feels like 500hp (He has a 458, Huracan, and 1200HP GTR, so I really trust his butt-dyno) but I would love to see it in writing.

If Pure doesn't cost too much more, I'd pay the difference for the peace of mind and assurance. I'm still chasing my tail trying to figure out if my dynos are low due to user error, or installation/parts issues.
