I've never talked to anyone that has real life experience of driving with them on their car.

Not looking to put the K27 down, I would just like to hear your opinions of the two turbo's.

Difficult to compare as I increased displacement (3.2->3.4) and decreased compression (10.5:1->8.5:1) so a very different beast. I mostly changed because I seemed to be running out of steam at 400chp and wanted to go higher. My sense is lower boost threshold and time to peak boost but I don't have any saved log's to compare. The most noticeable attribute is the prolonged spool down of the GT35R at shutoff.
