most good turbos will give 15-25hp per psi input depending on all the specifics~ so low end would be 15 * 6 or about 90 hp~

you may require a fuel system etc who knows as well depends on how far yours can be pushed

Full intake? You can't use an intake kit made for a stock motor on a turbo. Most turbos run a cone right off then compressor. Are you getting heads ported or something?

Exhaust? You don't run an exhaust with a turbo kit unless it's custom. Anything before the catbacks needs to be stock or from the CFM kit. Either way, all the piping after the downpipe will have zero affect on performance.

Do you know what you're doing?

Not really. I'm trying to learn more about it. This is my first performance car so I just know basics like exhaust and all that. Fairly new to a turbo I just know the very very basics. I'd love if you could enlighten me with your insane amount of knowledge( not sarcastic at all)

Turbos require stock or modified manifolds to work. They are also the biggest restriction and the downpipe (dump) just after the exhaust impeller. The only thing you can do to improve it is have custom headers made and make the downpipe larger. Anything after the downpipe is negligible to performance since it's already pass the largest restriction in the system.

Most people put a cone filter right on the turbo. There is little reason to try and grab cold air from somewhere else since the turbo will heat the air anyway (by product of compressing the air to make boost is heat, superchargers do it too). The intercooler then cools it back down.

You can change/port the intake manifold and heads for better flow, but it's really cost prohibitive to anyone but a crazy person with lots of money or a company sponsored build. Superchargers benefit from N/A exhaust mods, but they still have no use for stock air intake.

There is tons of information out there if you google. Knowledge is very handy when trying to keep from wasting money on mods you won't use later.
