Turbo Setup for Low End Power

3.5 swap 3.0 Nistune ECU and Timing, hotshot headers, nwp spacers, 2.5in catback. Drove my VQ30 for the first time in months and just WOW at the difference in low end power, the vq30 feels like a go cart.

I've been looking at 5.5 maybe 6 PSI on a Garrett Gen II GTX2976 with a T3 .63 A/R Turbine Housing. For the top end I only have a goal of 350-400whp tops and I think the .63 A/R is enough to support me to high revs, I don't really go past just over 6k. This is my daily driver and I do mostly in town driving. My ideal setup would spool as early as possible full boost at 2k would be sweet but I'd settle for 2.5k and still pack 350+hp on the top end

Also looks like 2.25 piping supports 700cfm, 2" 500 cfm, 3" 900cfm, I know my 2.5 exhaust will be good for the quick spoolup I'm trying to take everything else into account also

The .63 a/r is perfect for daily driving imo. I had a MasterPower 50 trim .63 a/r. The power was there when you needed it, I wasn't a high rev driver either, getting on the highway on ramps was my favorite, and scaring the wife accelerating as well.

hot side:
something to collect the exhaust (reverse y-pipe)
down pipe to connect to the exhaust

cold side:
intake piping from filter to turbo
piping for turbo outlet to throttle body
if you want intercooler you'll need to plumb for that...if you want to be fancy and go air to water IC then that adds even more work.

oil to feed turbo
oil to drain turbo
fuel injectors - need moar flow
fuel pump - more flow

ecu upgrade or a way to tune it
boost controller (manual or electrical)

if i lost you after the first few lines then go buy a car that already has a turbo and don't turbo your maxima.
