Default Which Junkyard turbo to use on a 1.6? DSM 2g T25 or KKK K26 T3?

Hi All,
I picked up 2 turbos and am debating which one to use. I'd appreciate any feedback you can provide. The 2 turbos I have for my project are:

DSM 2g T25 turbo (off Eclipse)

KKK K26 T3 turbo (off Audi)

I searched and saw this post:

https://www.miataturbo.net/diy-turbo-discussion-14/audi-k26-kkk-turbo-good-bad-33626/

I didn't find it too useful since it wasn't clear whether anyone was running this (especially on a 1.6).

Will there be too much lag on the K26 turbo? I know I'll like the response of the T25 (boost at lower RPMS) but also like the option of increasing boost/power of the K26.

If anyone is running either set up, please let me know your thoughts/set up. Any input is greatly appreciated =)

Do you have a built engine?

A T25 can come close to maxing out a stock engine (~220-235rwtq is the number I hear maxed, and I've been told 225rwtq-250rwtq is the limit), which makes a T3 questionable.

Just a stock motor (the turbo will go on a stock one sitting in my garage with 110k). Depending on how much money/time I have, I might rebuild it. Otherwise just hoping to slap the turbo on like many ppl do and have some fun =)
