I know nothing about Garrett turbos, however I can give you some 1st and 2nd hand info on the K27 series.

First off there is MUCH more to fast spool up than just the turbo. All of the coordinating components in combination with perfect tuning are required for minimum lag.

An extreme example that I know of consists of a 3.3L CIS engine, SC330 cams, aftermarket heat echangers/headers, ported heads, and a K27S turbo:
- 470CHP, 400RWHP
- Boost Threshold @ 1800rpm, 1.0Bar @ 2600rpm, no perceptable lag
- 22mpg highway

There is more than one way to skin a cat.
