Neal, I answered the question, there on the last line.
The first part was rebuking the link that was posted, and what the "I'm a guy with a site so I'm an expert" said about turbines. What he referenced with the "maxivent" isn't even a turbine .

I think turbines can work on some homes very well, but just screw others up so bad they grow organizm's in the attic.
Every home is different means, how well are the pressures in your home balanced....that's a whole different class.
Only time and monitoring the issue in a scientific manner will tell for sure.
We are just guessing.

I just provide data and let the now-somewhat-informed OP decide, based on his/her own "utility function".
