any turbo 3.8's on here? lots of q's

hey fellas i'm new to the board, and yes, i already ran a search on the subject.

i'm looking for some help from any of you guys well versed on turboing a '99 V6 mustang. what is the best set up and what are you running? t3/t4 or? what trim?

i'm not interested in a 4.6 or 5.0 swap either so don't ask.
i'm looking to make 300hp/300tq or something in that range. low boost or high boost? low end or top end? i have a manual transmission.

i figure the parts i need are:
intercooler and piping
wastegate
blow off valve
turbocharger (obviously)
catch can
windstar intake
8.8 rear and 3.73 gears
port'd n polish'd heads
headers, downpipe
boost controller
boost gauge
fuel pump
head studs

i have already upgraded my brakes and i have a CAI. i'm still new to mustangs so i need help in finding out what i need to build it properly. time is not an object now because i'm just trying to stockpile parts before anything. what would i look to spend?

I have helped a friend turbo a 04 ford focus, and while i'm no expert, he built the kit from the ground up. Hes the most well versed turbo expert i know. I could put u in contact with him if you'd like?
