its not really needed unless you're talking about a single turbo that requires a t3 turbine flange.
Dual T3 garrett turbos from a 2.3 ford should put you into the 500rwhp range if you'd ever want to boost that high.
The .48 housings would spool around 2200-2500 rpm (guestimation)
You can hook a turbo from a 2.3 to our v6s?

hate to make you define terms here, but by "hook", to you mean direct bolt up? If so, then no.
Custom headers and down tubes are required.
If you're asking if a pair of 2.3 ford T3 turbos would be a perfect match for a 3.8 liter v6, Then I'd say yes. Yes they are.

Would it be difficult to build a kit (custom) for a 3.8 with a t3 turbo?

Difficult? eh, not really. 'a pain-in-the-@$$', yes. It always is.
I haven't built mine yet for this '99, but am assembling the parts (slowly). I have the turbos and probably enough to modify the stock headers to point forward. Most of the down tube stock.
The rest would be to put some forged 8.5:1 pistons in and a megasquirt computer.

Edit: you said "A t3 turbo".
Our 3.8 engines would require a PAIR of t3 turbos to flow enough.

What would be a good single set up?
Also a good twin set up.
I'd like to start collecting parts and have some guidance

a single setup is all you'd ever need if you ever do decide to go that route

I'm looking at a turbo cuz I don't wanna change goods and I can't bring myself to spend 4,200 for a procharger.
And eventually I'd like to build a 4.2 and drop in it so would a twin b better at that point?

no a single is still fine.....there have been sixxers running over 500 on a good single setup. no need for even close to that for a DD, but it happens lol

and you'll still end up spending quite a penny on a turbo setup lol...if you haven't done any research i'd get on google and start with the basics. read and learn is the best advice i can give you

I would just run a single... simpler... less parts...
Unless you run wastegated twins, but even so a wastegated single is simpler...

I don't know if twin 2.3 turbos will make what you want twin evo 16gs made 447 or something like that.

precision 6057 would work

if you wanted more room

(or the older 6262)

Stock motor for now.
Plans are a built 4.2

I just need help on getting parts and placement an how it goes together... I have access to machines welded etc. just need to knowledge of how it goes together

I doubt youd be happy...a stock turbo from a 2.3 isnt all that great. Torres gave you some good ones to look into. Like i said id suggest research

Re: Most performance or HP for money?

Yea, 1 stock 2.3 turbo wouldn't be enough. It'd be so choked up, your higher rpm wouldn't be there.
The garrett T3 2.3 turbos are great turbos (as non-ball bearing turbos go). They have built in wastegates, set at 9psi.
Only problem would be the additional piping to plumb in the twin turbo setup.
A single turbo would fit nicely behind the radiator.

Twin turbo vs single turbo has nothing to do with hp output.
When sized properly to the engine, neither spool quicker nor produce vast amounts of hp over the other.
Its your choice in what you want to build.

Well I was waiting for a 2.3 that I could build because I have a v6 and a v8 I want to build a 4 cyl and I was thinking if I found a 2.3 that's not turboed I could use it..

Yep, you can adjust turbo boost on the fly by changing wastegate reference line pressure.
I have mine set to 25psi on one switch, then 30psi on the next switch.

Cruzinconcepts says PTK makes a turbo kit for our cars. You might want to research their options.

Start with a turbo 2.3 block, all stock, put its stock turbo on and run it.
Thats what I started with. Until I went crazy with the holset hx35w turbo and fiberglass doors, fenders, hood, trunk, etc...

Its for sale if you want it

Boost pressure can be set by augmenting the pressure going to the wastegate reference line. You can install a bleeder that will boost it from a 6pound spring to say 15 pounds of boost. Its easy.
They only set it to that probably for the general public so they dont grenade their motors on 20 lbs of boost and stock pistons.

Don't worry about the boost psi. That can be changed easilly.
Your main concern is the kit and how to fuel your engine.
I'd say megasquirt. But that is a long learning curve too.

WAY better than a dyno tune because its processor is faster and its able to adjust more parameters. It also records logs while running and is compatible with wideband O2 meters.
