Yes it's ripe for a single turbo in the middle of the V. There are many anti-lag methods to almost completley eradicate turbo lag, those being:
Fresh air bypass valve
Twin scroll exhaust volute.
Variable geometry turbine.
ALS "babg-bang" but it guzzles fuel and is very damaging to the exhaust.
Low-inertia compressor and turbine wheels made from titanium aluminide.
I see no reason why a single turbo will not work.
