This is a really simple question,

Since I've modded my Skerton to have a better burr stability

And mostly with 2x M8 nuts for better adjustment lock and
stepless precision.

Now i have a extra stepless precision with the M8 nuts and a better burr stability for consistent and dial-able grind for espresso.

But, I hate to say this but would this truly perform on a pressurized basket or a non pressurized basket in my portafilter.

Although there are people, who use skertons for their Silvia V3.

Worst case scenario would be the pressurized filter basket  for it creates artificial pressure for crema doesnt rely on the beans.

and worse pressurized baskets make only good crema and not espresso.

 
Only true passion and expertise will make the best coffee.

The Skerton should perform optimal in a Non-Pressurized basket, there are videos of people using it in various espresso machines online.

this is correct.

this is incorrect.  It's artificial brown foam that looks something like crema.  It is not crema.

IMO there's no reason to go pressurized unless you want the results from your stale beans to look better.  If that's not your top priority (i.e. taste is your priority) then non-pressurized.
