What matters for the taste is the ratio of grams of coffee in the basket vs grams of coffee in the cup. This ratio is roughly 1:1 for ristretto and 1:2 for regular espresso. Or anything between those 2 values or above to get the taste that you want.
That means that with a bigger basket you aim for a more coffee in the cup. With the 22 g basket I would experiment to get between 22 g and 44 g of coffee in the cup. The timing is always roughly the same, around 25~30 seconds.
