Go VNT. A VNT-15, like off a 1.9 TDi, would give you snappy response 
down low with a good spooling time, and with the right mechanical 
control setup you can even generate boost pressure at idle! How's that 
for a spool time? ;)

They aren't that expensive either, even bought new. VWDiesel.net has 
some good thread writeups on how to make a manual VNT controller, either 
boost-pressure actuated or cable operated tied into the accelerator pedal.

I'm planning for and kicking up funding for a V6 TDi conversion for my 
QSW, with the intention of going from a single VNT-20 to dual VNT-15s. 
Should be pretty sweet.
