If I understand correctly, this car is gonna be a street machine. If that in fact is correct, I would suggest a small turbo. They are going to spool quicker and the engine will come to life in lower RPMS. With the larger turbos there is going to alot more lag.

I have turbo charged a few car's in the past and am working on turbo charging a camaro soon hopfully... ( in the design fas )
I guess it's just me but I like the the turbo charger to come to life at around 3200rpm's and on a motor like that if you do any lower than you'll be spinning the tire's every time you leave a light.. if you keep the big power above 3000rpm's it will be alot more street friendly and the cop's whont be giving you a stack of ticket's ever time you go out...

Gidday to you all. I'm new here & from what i've already read while browsing over this site I think i'll like being here.
Those turbos should be ok, they may suffer a little lag but will make good power. Mates 540 runs twin GT42R turbos & it's just churned out 1600rwhp with wheelspin.
I am in the midst of collecting the parts to build my new engine for my Pro Streeter which will be running twin Garrett GT60's which have a 144mm impeller. With 615 cubes of Dart magic it will still suffer a little lag but when it comes on it'll be a ton of fun.
