you listed the exhaust side A/R. what comp side A/R are you planning on running? running a .82 A/R (area radius ratio) will spool slower than if you were to run .63 A/R on the exhaust side. either way, 300whp wont be a problem with that turbo. (im running a .60 A/R comp side, .63 A/R exhaust side, easily in the 300whp range; SC44 is rated up to 550hp). good luck with your setup.

dont get a t3/60-1 for your hp goal. sure you'll make the goal but your curve will be peaky. get a smaller turbo such as a t3/t4b.

What are your goals? Do you want it to spool up early 3K rpm, 5K rpm, or ?

If you get a turbo that spools at 3K, your gonna have trouble launching in first without smoking the tires. Then your gonna bounce off the Rev limiter before your know it. I'd rather have a bigger turbo so you can launch without huge wheel spin and then you get that sort of slingshot effect.....it'll smoke a smaller turbo. Only Problem with a big turbo that spools late, it's not a great deal of fun for street use because your not getting any boost down low in the rpms. So you have to decide what you want and what kind of driving your gonna be doing.
