Read through most of this thread. Seems that each unit is capable of making 1100hp or so. Is it safe to assume that twin 480's will support roughly 1600 or so hp on a 580" BB?

Not at all, I think that's about an ideal size engine for that turbo.

The more I read about these turbos, the more I am leaning toward it vs a Precision unit...

The more you think I'm a moron, the more I want to ask you to pay the difference between the two.

Lmao! Even getting Precision at price through my shop, the BW would be damn near half price. And it sounds like they perform just as good if not better.
