Nope, K26 is too _small_, RS2 is moving in the right direction. :)

Having talked to Porsche guys, the warm setup is either a K27 or a
K27/K26 hybrid (-8 trim on the K26 hot side, usually; K26-6 is the
standard MC turbo, I believe).  They go much larger (non-KKK) for
race cars or hot street rockets.

My MC has a K27/K26-6 and pushes 2.2 bar very nicely, but has
what most would consider unacceptable lag, it doesn't reach full
boost until about 3200-3300 RPM (I just keep the revs up to
compensate :).
