K26 Turbo?

Sounds good in theory Dan,
  Except that the k24 is a little better developed and actually
handles the boost better than you think.
  The inducer Dia. on the k26 is actually smaller than the k24.
The thing to do would be to have the k26 rebuilt with a larger
and newer cold side.  Talk to   Majestic Turbo's.
They can mod that k26 nicely and make the 20v pull much better
in the upper ranges.  But at a cost of much slower spool up
times.  Sort of a Pseudo RS-2 but not quite as nice.  Yet
cheaper than an RS-2.
  Good luck.
