By nature, the bigger turbo should hit full spool much later than the little twins, but still come on hard enough that you get rocked into the back of your seat. That's a high WTQ/WHP big turbo experience for me... not a slow gradual increase where peak boost hits at 6500 RPM.
I believe it's stated in the other thread that he's still working out underboost DME codes from the slower spooling big turbo. I would imagine tuning in the lower third/quarter of the RPM range is delayed until they can keep the DME happy.

That being said, I remember being a big part of the MR2 Turbo scene years ago and the big measure of "spool" and how quick a turbo could make torque was the RPM where the engine would reach 200wtq. Given, that motor was 2.0L turbo, mine made 200wtq@ 2850rpm and was an absolute blast to drive.

Vishnu's car makes 200wtq@2400 and another 200wtq more in just 1000rpm. Not too shabby for not even touching/optimizing that rpm band.
