The CT26 core is stronger than the CT20b and a better base for hydrids

Sure as long as you don't run more than 17psi on it.
Ceramic turbine wheel. Your're right.

But the ct20b has a better spool up & can hold boost to redline much bettern than the ct26.

If you rebuild it with the right internals, a CT26 can provide just as much power, if not more, than a CT20b. I think the general consensus is that the ATS CT27 makes a little more power than a CT20b, but spools slightly slower.
