Default Turbo for 6.0 GTO

Friend of mine has a 06'? (Last year for the GTO) has a short throw shift kit, clutch, aluminum driveshaft, mid size cam, not sure on the specs, head work, bigger brakes, headers, intake, yada yada.

Anyhow he bought a front mount turbo kit and is using some 6.0 truck manifolds flipped and is wanting a 72-76mm turbo with a smaller housing (.81 or 98) and he was wondering where's a good place to buy a turbo and what would be the best housing to run?? He's planning on 6 psi max until he finishes off the motor.

The motor will be fine stock other than valve springs.

Heads are ported with bigger springs and new guides and seals.

He's planning to run 80-100 lb injectors.

Shoot....just ask Diesel53 how much he wants for his S475. Then he can switch to a smaller turbo.
