I'm like this too but what if you have to wait to 3-4k for the turbo to reach full boost?
A friend of mine has a gt40ed qv30dek maxima that reaches full boost just over 3k. The lag is pretty noticeable and zzp'* turbo is bigger. Granted the 3.8 does have more displacement but the T66 probably spools later.
I guess It does really all come down when and how you want your power to come in.
I do like mid/top end but I'm not sure I like power comming on real fast at a certian rpm.
